A brief history of our forex team

In 1996, our founders saw the opportunity to create a service that provides speedy, secure and cost-effective international money transfers at competitive exchange rates.

How it all began

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, first as 1st Contact Forex and now as Sable International, we’ve built a business out of refining and mastering the money transfer service. To date we have over 60,000 registered clients and do over 140,000 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 with expert advice, we can help.

We also help small and medium-sized businesses transfer funds internationally.

Whatever your foreign exchange needs are, we’ve got you covered.

Meet the team

We have a multinational team of Aussies, Kiwis, South Africans, Poles and even the odd Brit. Our dedicated brokers in Australia, Hong Kong, the UK and South Africa work across multiple times zones and are always happy to assist you with any query you may have.

We can talk high level forex, but can put it in layman’s terms if you need us to. We’re passionate about what we do and we put our clients at the heart of our business.

Find out a little more about the brokers and client liaisons you’ll have the pleasure of getting to know when you use our service.
