Don’t just take our word for it, hear from some of the 10,000+ businesses that already work with us and how they have benefited from our great rates and award-winning service.

I found the team to be very responsive and helpful. Thanim, in particular, has always been flexible and made the FX bookings very easy for me to deal with, which is the best customer service I can ever ask for.

Would totally recommend Equals Money.

Financial Accountant

Our business operates in numerous international markets where rapid access to multiple currencies at competitive rates is vital. We’ve always found that Equals consistently delivers on both counts and its dealers, particularly Thanim, are always able to offer support when needed.

Head of Finance

Until 3 years ago I  used a different major FX firm but then I  started working with Bobby Morgan at FairFX- and haven't looked back. All my FX deals for myself and my firm are now with FairFX.

Why? Great rates, efficient  transfers- and an outstanding level of personal  service and attention to detail.

How long do payments take?

We aim to process your payment on the same day we receive the funds. Depending on the value date, time of day and currency it could take up to two days to arrive.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept bank transfers. If you have an online account with us, you can also pay from balance.

What is currency hedging and what hedging tools do you offer?

Currency hedging is a mechanism to help importing and exporting businesses manage cross-border currency exchange risk by locking in rates now for a date in the future. This provides some certainty during times of market turbulence.
 
Vanilla options, participating forwards and bespoke solutions are our most widely utilised currency hedging solutions. Check in with your Equals account manager to see how we can be of assistance.
