About WorldFirst

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. 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

Below you can put a face to the names of the WorldFirst UK Limited and China management team and learn a little more about what makes them tick.
