How it Works

We are available to help clients save money for any business currency transfers, offering Simplicity, Security and Savings. We are an FCA-regulated Authorised Payments Institution, which you can independently verify on the FCA's register of firms.

There are 3 easy steps to using the service:

  • Register for an account with us. This carries no cost or obligation, and will give you access to our great bank-beating exchange rates.
  • Request a quote. If you are happy with a rate we offer you, you can instruct us to secure it for you by phone or email, and that rate is then fixed for your transaction.
  • Settle the order. You send the selling currency to our client account, and we will transfer your buying currency at your instruction.

There are no passwords to remember, we don't pass your details to anyone else, and you will be assigned your own account manager to help you from start to finish.

The various products we offer for business clients are further explained below.

More on our Business Client Currency Services

What are your charges and commissions?

We don't charge a commission, as we make a small margin between the buy and sell rate for every order that is placed with us. So the exchange rate we quote, is the exchange rate you get.

Transfer charges vary between free of charge up to £12, depending on the volume and frequency of payments made by your business; please contact us to discuss further.

You do not have to pay anything to register for a trading facility or keep it open, and there is no obligation to use our service until you decide to.

Why should I choose Currency Index?

You will be dealing with one of the most decorated currency brokers in the UK, as a multi-award winning firm with an exceptional record of client service. These are crucial when your business is relying on us to make or receive payments on your behalf - and our rates are excellent too.

Is my money safe with a currency broker?

Currency Index has been trading since 2008. We operate Safeguarded and Segregated client accounts, in accordance with our regulations, are non-speculative (and so have no exposure to market movement) and all our staff are based in the UK. You can see more information on our Regulatory Controls page.

Do you offer online trading?

No, we can offer the very best rates for your business by telephone or email. In the vast majority of cases we are able to offer better rates than online platforms, and an email or call direct to your dealer is often quicker than logging on to an online payment platform too.
