Why thousands of people use our forex service each year


Bank-beating exchange rates and low fees

With us, you’re guaranteed to get better exchange rates and lower fees than a traditional bank can offer you. Most importantly, you’ll get a service that is tailored specifically to your individual or corporate needs.

Because of the complex legislation and intimidating Reserve Bank regulations, South Africans often look to traditional banks to help them with forex. The problem is that traditional banks charge unnecessary fees and don’t offer the best exchange rates either.

We secure better exchange rates and charge lower fees than banks can. We also know that foreign exchange services need to be tailored to unique requirements that are very often country- and person-specific.

We also have years of industry experience, facilitating over 140,000 transactions for 60,000 registered clients each year.

Transferring money out of South Africa can be complex; working with exchange control regulations requires expert knowledge and understanding. We have the experience to ensure that your transfers are quick and hassle-free, no matter where you want to send them.

Our services include:

  • Currency risk management and hedging strategies
  • Foreign investment allowance transfers
