Global Transfers are the new kids on the block when it comes to sending money internationally. Make like a journalist and find out what they’re all about.


ATB Financial customers can send them. People all over the world can receive them.


A Global Transfer is a way to send money directly to someone’s bank account, outside of Canada.


Anytime you need to take care of loved ones back home, support your student abroad, or pay those condo fees down south.


You can send from your online banking to more than 40 countries.
