At WorldFirst, our mission is to create the world’s best foreign exchange platform for individuals, and international businesses.
WorldFirst was born back in 2004 by two innovators in a South London basement armed with ten years of banking experience, an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to provide customers a real alternative to the big banks. Since then, we’ve grown exponentially and with a global team around 600 strong, have become a market-leading, multi-award winning, bank-beating, rapidly-growing, fun-loving international fund collections company.
Currently, more than 400,000 global customers & 150,000 global businesses choose WorldFirst for their international transfers. We have transferred £70 Billion for our customers since we launched, more than 1 million transfers per year.
