About 1st Contact Forex
In 1996, we saw the opportunity to create a service that provides speedy, secure and cost-effective international money transfers at competitive exchange rates.
Forex services were traditionally provided by the high street banks and larger money transfer agents, but we knew that we could do better. Money transfer services are just one of the many hundreds of services that banks offer, and let’s be honest, it’s impossible to master them all.
We were right. For more than 20 years, we’ve built a business out of refining and mastering the money transfer service. To date we have over 50,000 registered clients and do over 120,000 transactions per year.
Our goal was, and is, to give clients the ability to transfer money internationally, from anywhere and at any time.
Whether you want to transfer your savings home, bring your savings back, send money to loved ones, pay off debt or invest offshore, we can help. We even help small and medium-sized businesses transfer funds internationally. Whatever your foreign exchange needs are, we’ve got you covered.
We’re accredited across the world
The security of our clients’ funds is especially important to us. We’re registered with HM Customs & Excise in the UK as a money services business (registration number 12148630).
