Award winning service

We’re proud of our role in helping businesses and individuals transfer money abroad. It gives us great pleasure when we win awards because it means other people think we’re doing a really good job too.

Awards & Accreditations

We’re a proud bunch (so much so that we have dedicated this whole page to tell you how award-winningly brilliant we are!)

All the shiny industry awards we have won have been a result of our hard work, dedication and real relationships we’ve built with our clients. We’ve been recognised as “best in class” by industry professionals and peers; what’s not to be proud of! Check them out below.

We’re extremely proud of the fact that we hold the Investors in People Standard. But what does that mean exactly?

The philosophy of the Standard is best summed up by the head of Investors in People (IIP), Paul Devoy – “Put your people at the heart of your vision and they’ll use their talents to achieve it”. Simply put, “good people make great business”.

Recognised worldwide, IIP is the UK's leading accreditation for business improvement through people management. With a huge array of resources, IIP helps businesses of any size to achieve best practices and put their employees first. By achieving their standard, we’ve clearly shown our dedication to realising the full potential of our employees.

As to what the Standard means for Currency UK and its clients, well, it means a lot. It’s extremely gratifying to know that all the effort we put into making Currency UK an excellent place to work is recognised by such a prestigious body. If we have satisfied and happy staff we know our customers’ experience will be equally as great. 

Currency UK has been named Best Money Transfer Provider at the British Bank Awards in 2018 and the Best Money Transfer Provider finalists in 2019. The British Bank Awards is an annual campaign to find the best products, hottest innovation and most trusted financial brands. 

The British Bank Awards were awarded across 18 categories to 15 firms, and to date have been featured in publications including The Sunday Express, The Mirror, The Daily Mail, The Guardian, The Spectator Money and Business Reporter to name a few. 

The results of the British Bank Awards 2018 are based on the feedback received from over 24,000 consumers and businesses. Mike Fotis, founder of Smart Money People, says “Smart Money People was founded on the belief that people power can help to make financial services work better for everybody. The fact that these awards are customer-driven should make winners especially proud to take home a British Bank Award in 2018”

Being crowned 'Best FX Customer Service Brand' by Global Brands Magazine has allowed us to truly showcase our dedication and passion for ensuring great customer service. 

Like all organisations we recognise that better customer service, builds trust. With that being said, customer service is more than just price - it's no secret we know all our customers by name. Through achievements such as this award, it shows that that is more than just marketing talk. Our customers, clients and partners believe we can maintain our exceptionally high levels of service. 

Currency UK has been named Most Transparent Broker at the World Finance Forex Awards 2018.

The World Finance Forex Awards is, as the name suggests, a worldwide competition, with the winners across 10 categories being decided by a panel of judges.

In their own words: “After a turbulent 2017, 2018 is shaping up to be yet another year of volatility for the forex industry. The World Finance Forex Awards 2018 celebrate the firms standing out in an ever-changing market.

Our Director, Adrian Jacob, said, "We really believe that transparency ensures the highest quality service for our customers, and to be recognised for our efforts means a lot."
