About us

We began trading in 2002 and a lot has changed in foreign exchange since then.

One thing that has remained consistent is our focus on providing our clients with the best experience possible.

The history of
Global Reach Group

Our experts have been helping clients for 17 years and in that time, we’ve grown to employ more than 130 talented people. Our clients have access to more than 140 currencies and in the last year alone we have transacted more than £4.8bn of foreign currency.

We’ve built a superb team, which has outstanding foreign exchange knowledge at its core and demonstrates highly valuable skills to benefit our clients on a day-to-day basis.

In 2016, we further bolstered our business with the backing of leading UK private equity firm, Inflexion Private Equity. They invest in high growth, entrepreneurial businesses with ambitious management teams and work in partnership with them to deliver growth.

Later the same year we acquired FC Exchange, a leading international money transfer business specialising in helping individuals with their personal foreign exchange requirements.

The integration of FC Exchange into the wider Global Reach Group has meant that, as well as being at the forefront of corporate foreign exchange, we are also able to offer the same level of service to private individuals.
