About Us

I like to know who I'm doing business with, particularly if it involves a large amount of my money. So below is more detailed information about Key Currency and what makes us different.

Our head office is located in Truro, Cornwall, which you might think is unusual for a financial business. But it comes with advantages.

As we have lower operating overheads than the big banks and London-based currency brokers, we can pass on those savings to our customers. We have no fancy offices, corporate art or private jets to pay for.

Another differentiating feature of Key Currency is that we are an independent, privately-owned currency broker. Our Directors own and run the business - so the way we operate is fundamentally different.

Many other brokers are now subsidiaries of large foreign conglomerates. As a result, their management are detached from the day-to-day operations. What you end up with is a business run by spreadsheets. Customers become account numbers. And the staff become headcount.

Key Currency works by making sure we have good people with experience and enthusiasm for what they do. Our Directors are sat within the business here in the UK and take a hands-on and personalised approach to our customers and staff.

Over the past 12 months, we have transacted over £300 million of foreign exchange in 39 different currencies for over 4,700 customers,

We have also earned a 5 Star Rating on Trustpilot. You can read our 400+ customer reviews here.

Protection and security of customer funds is our top priority. Key Currency is an FCA regulated Authorised Payment Institution and as such, all money transfers are conducted through safeguarded client accounts. This means your money is ringfenced in a separate bank account and not pooled with company funds.

Our payments system is built on highly secure technology and integrates with our global network of banking partners to offer fast, reliable payments at extremely competitive exchange rates.
