Authorised in the EU.

When you’re moving money abroad, knowing it’s in safe hands is everything.

Since the UK left the European Union, all financial companies operating in the EU need to be licensed by an EU authority. If a foreign exchange provider isn’t licensed to work in the EU, then their customers may not be fully protected.

We're authorised by the Bank of Spain as an Electronic Money
Institution (Registration no. 6716) in the EU, and by the FCA (FRN 900669) in the UK, meaning we’re fully licensed to operate in Spain and throughout the European Union.

Regulated and reliable

Regulated, reliable, always in safe hands.

In addition to the EU and the UK, we’re also regulated in the US, Australia and South Africa, transacting around €11.5bn every year in 40+ currencies and 120+ countries.

As part of our regulation, we’re required to safeguard your money through stringent security measures and compliance procedures. The security of your funds is our top priority.

We’re also here to offer guidance, support and information if you ever have any questions or concerns about fund security or safeguarding.
