Security & Regulation

Security and compliance is of paramount importance to The Currency Account. We adhere to strict and stringent regulations and have robust internal controls in place to safeguard client funds and minimise any risks to the business or client monies. All transactions are initiated using a secure payment system which ensures each payment is approved internally by multiple users and processed by our Tier 1 banking partners.

We don't speculate on the currency markets. Or invest your money overnight. When you enter into a transaction with us, we enter a matching, binding trade with our counterparty bank.
