We're changing money


We know that moving your money around the world means a lot more than just changing pounds to euros, or dollars to yen.

Every payment has a story. Maybe you're buying that dream property overseas - you know, that one with the gorgeous view that you can't stop thinking about. Maybe you're finally stepping off the treadmill and retiring somewhere nice and warm. Or perhaps you're building an international e-commerce business by selling on global marketplaces and collecting sales revenues in different currencies?

Whatever your story, we want it to have the perfect ending. We'll go out of our way to make that happen, and will make sure every payment has a happily ever after.

Look how far we've come

The team

We're one of the most experienced teams in foreign exchange. Even more importantly, we're a group of people who care and who'll pull out all the stops to make sure you get the most from your currency exchange.

Below you can put a face to the name of the World First management team. And learn a little more about what makes them tick. We've all picked 3 words that really mean something to us. What would your 3 words be?
