About CurrencyFair

We believe in a world of fair financial services.

CurrencyFair began as the answer to a common problem: expats looking for a cheap, simple way to move money to and from their new home countries. The easiest way to achieve this was by swapping with friends who had the corresponding need. This simple idea has developed into a global money transfer platform that has exchanged over €8 billion.

Today, the people and businesses, and their reasons for using CurrencyFair are too many to count, but our mission remains the same: to empower them all with access to fair financial services. We do this by embracing the latest technologies to deliver great exchange rates, supported by outstanding customer service and processes that are easy to understand and use.

    Paul Byrne
    CEO

    As a CurrencyFair customer, I was intrigued by the way I was able to save so much when making FX transfers. When I returned to Ireland after building and selling three hugely successful software businesses in the US, I met with the founders, and became an even bigger fan and believer in the opportunity to transform the way people transact foreign currency and move their money. So I invested in and joined the Company to lead its growth and drive the mission of fair, transparent and low cost FX services for all.
