Keeping your money safe

We take the security of your money seriously and have regulations that we adhere to.

Here’s some more information about how we work to keep your money safe.

We never play with your money. We don’t speculate on the currency markets. We don’t invest your money overnight. When you enter into a transaction with us, we enter into a matching irrevocable covering deal with a reputable bank treasury. It is this transaction that turns your sold currency into your bought currency and from which your outward payment is made.
