In 2000 our founder asked himself one question. Why does it cost so much to transfer money abroad? The answer is that it doesn’t need to. That’s how Foreign Currency Direct began. And it’s how we work now.

We are also backed by Pollen Street Capital, a global asset investment management company focused on the financial and business services sector with over £2.7bn of assets under management. Pollen's extensive network and advisory board bring insight and market access, and add deep knowledge, experience and expertise to our proposition.
