Our story

WorldFirst was born out of the desire to create financial inclusivity.

In 2004 Jonathan Quin and Nick Robinson left their corporate roles in global banking organisations to set up WorldFirst and bring their dream into reality.

Since then, WorldFirst has grown exponentially and now has seven offices around the world.
