The foreign exchange market is complex and increasingly volatile, so our clients find it reassuring to know that their international currency transactions are managed by a brand they can trust.


Our clients don’t want to be watching foreign exchange markets to work out the best time to transact, and once they've completed a transaction, they don't want to be worrying about whether it's gone through successfully.


American Express is a global brand that has been processing international money transfers for over 120 years. By partnering with us, businesses can feel that they’re getting the experience of our 120-year heritage, as well as a global network and brand they can trust.


All of our clients have a dedicated relationship manager. I think it gives our clients real peace of mind to know they can call someone who knows their business and the foreign exchange market. We help them create a foreign exchange strategy that's right for their business.


Clients have access to an online payment platform that is intuitive and easy to use. Once a transaction is in our system we use our global footprint and close interbank relationships to complete it efficiently and cost effectively. This line of sight on the funds right through the process means clients can be confident their transaction will get to its destination securely and on time.


Our global network also gives American Express the ability to offer competitive pricing and low rates for our clients, which means real savings for their business. My team is dedicated to watching the market so that our clients get the best deal possible.
