Ever thought about whether your business would do better if it expanded overseas?

We've just launched Wise Business to cut the costs for companies that need to make international payments.

Well, not only are UK SMEs expanding all over the world - and 75% of those that do enjoy better profits on average as a result (!) - but people head from all over the world to set up businesses here. In fact, almost half a million foreign entrepreneurs have started businesses in the UK, employing over 8.3 million people.
