Under the new partnership, Al Ansari Exchange will offer Federal Bank’s ‘Fed Flash’ service, a revolutionary and innovative service that will allow Indian expatriate workers in the UAE to send their remittances to their Federal Bank accounts in India through Al Ansari Exchange.

According to Federal Bank, ‘Fed Flash’ allow Federal Bank customers to remit money real-time into to their accounts through at any Al Ansari Exchange branch to all branches (over 750) of Federal Bank in India.
