About us

The Global Expat Pay vision

“I founded Global Expat Pay in order to truly help our customers to make their Global Mobility operations work more effectively and solve the problems which have prevented efficiency and strategic impact. By simplifying the way data and payments are managed, we create the opportunity to get control of these complex business processes and drive much needed insights.”


– Mike Hibberd, Founder and CEO, Global Expat Pay

What we do

Founded by industry-leading experts, Global Expat Pay tackles the challenges faced by Global Mobility operations through the first combined data and payments service. Enabled by smart technologies, Big Data thinking and a leading global foreign payment solution, our one-stop solution allows Global Mobility teams to seamlessly manage operations, eliminating operational inefficiencies, minimising external costs and providing insightful analytics.

Our Partners

With international payments playing significant role in the assignee management process, Global Expat Pay has partnered with Convera, a leading provider of cross-border payments.  Our combined solution gives customers access to over 140 currencies in 200 countries and territories at the press of a button.

As a trusted partner of Global Expat Pay, Convera integrates into our solution to ensure smart, simple and secure payments, worldwide.

Expense Management

Any Global Mobility programme creates a complex, individual train of relocation expenses, international payments, and tax and international social security liabilities – a trail that needs to be checked, reconciled, reported and paid. Often, domestic systems are simply unable to cope with the complexity.

As a trusted partner of Global Expat Pay, Hessel’s Global Mobility expense management service, integrates into our solution to ensure you can make expense payments simply and accurately.

International banking

A smooth transition to a new host location is key to the success of an international assignment. That’s why we’ve partnered with HSBC Expat, a specialist global personal banking service designed specifically for expatriates. Through this partnership, our customers can ensure assignees’ bank accounts are in place and pre-funded prior to their arrival on host soil.

HSBC Expat offers banking and wealth management services for those living and working abroad, providing expats with a secure, central place to manage and grow their money, no matter where they move. Savings accounts in up to 19 currencies, foreign exchange services and a dedicated FX App are just some of the benefits an HSBC Expat account offers to help ease an assignee’s move.

Expat Academy is the secret advantage to Global Mobility professionals, providing them with inspiring events and essential resources which help them to grow their knowledge, skills and support network.

ECA International

Providing mobility solutions for a world that is constantly moving. 

A trusted partner of Global Expat Pay, ECA is opening up exciting new opportunities for our fast-growing business, thanks to its established presence and relationships with industry professionals around the world.
