Nagad is a very dynamic and secure digital financial service in Bangladesh that operates under the authority of the Bangladesh Post Office. It is an attached department of the Ministry of Post and Telecommunication, Bangladesh and operated by Third Wave Technologies Limited. Nagad is the new version of the previously introduced Postal Cash Card and Electronic Money Transfer System of the Bangladesh Post Office. Nagad was first introduced on 11 November 2018. Tanvir A Mishuk is the founder managing director of Nagad.

Nagad aims to lead the Digital Financial Service (DFS) revolution in Bangladesh and it provides day-to-day financial transactions for the people of Bangladesh. According to the World Bank’s Global Findex 2017, “only 50% of Bangladeshis had mobile banking and/ or financial institution accounts as of 2017, of which only 21.2% have mobile money accounts.” That means a large number of people in Bangladesh are out of the banking facilities and they require reliable service to assist their financial needs. With facilities like cash-in, cash-out, people to people (P2P) money transfer, mobile top-ups, Nagad is to improve the lives of people by enabling them with financial flexibility.
