Chris started at FCD in 2005, before founding currency exchange company Pure FX in 2006, which ultimately merged with FCD in 2020 after being acquired by Pollen Street Capital in December 2018.
Having worked in the foreign currency industry for 15 years, and during that time starting his own company and occupying a variety of roles within Pure FX from the time of inception, Chris has a wealth of knowledge across the board when it comes to currency exchange. He’s dedicated to providing a holistic service to his clients and goes above and beyond to help them find the international payments process less daunting.
When Chris isn’t in the office, he enjoys spending time with his Daughter, keeping fit at the gym and on the golf course, and visiting restaurants in the evenings (when social distancing allows!).
Based upon my experience over 10 years I would commend their first class service to anyone. Always helpful and excellent rates. Why bother with high street banks whose rates are never comparable, but most of all have lost the personal service which FCD has in spade loads!
Excellent service. 100% reliable and much better value than the FX services offered by banks.
Foreign Currency Direct offer a very fast and efficient service with good rates, they always beat my bank.
I’ve used FCD for the last 5 years to finance our holiday cottage in France. The staff are always polite and helpful, and make the transfer process very straightforward and easy. Thoroughly recommended.
