CurrencyFair was originally established in 2009 by a team who had the vision to create the world’s first peer-to-peer foreign exchange marketplace that enables consumers (and small businesses) to save substantial sums of money when transferring money abroad. The company is created on the premise that all customers should come first, by having access to a simple, transparent and innovative product which eliminates hidden fees and uncompetitive exchange rates offered by Banks. The Company operates globally with offices in Dublin, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia and is currently embarking on a growth phase with increasing revenues, customer base and supported jurisdictions.
