About the Company:

Currency Solutions started in 2003 with the belief that every customer deserved access to excellent exchange rates, a premium service and the latest market insight and technology.

Fast forward to today and we’ve successfully transitioned from start-up to a leading independent FX and international payments company. Headquartered in London with offices in four countries, we’ve sent billions securely around the world and been ranked ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot by our customers.

Today the world is different. Our core beliefs haven’t changed, but we recognise our delivery must if we are to successfully solve the complex challenges our customers are facing. In practice, this means finding both savings and stability in challenging trading environments, moving to an anticipatory model of servicing business and personal customers, and collaborating with industry partners to develop new and compelling product and service offerings.
