ACE offers a broad range of financial services and is the largest provider of MoneyGram wire transfer transactions. Our variety of products and services include money orders, small consumer loans (where applicable), bill payment services, prepaid local and long distance telecommunication services, and other ancillary products. ACE is a publicly owned company and is listed and traded on The NASDAQ Stock Market under the symbol AACE.
