Can I trust Currencies Direct with my money?

We’re FCA authorised and follow strict rules to keep your money safe and secure.

How we ‘safeguard’ your money

As an Electronic Money Institution (EMI) we must protect your money with a system known as safeguarding.

With safeguarding, your money is kept in separate bank accounts to the money we use to run our business. This means that, if the unthinkable happened and we went out of business, you’d be likely to get most (if not all) of your money back. (In the insolvency process, customers are first in line to get money back.)

But don’t worry – we’re in great shape.
