Leading UK-based foreign payments provider continues expansion into four new US states
Currencies Direct, a leading international payments provider, has announced plans for further expansion in the US after receiving regulatory approval to operate in Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.
The move represents a significant expansion for the UK-based payments service, which has seen a 30% growth in turnover year on year in the US. It currently operates in Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, Washington, Montana and North Carolina.
The organisation launched its flagship US office in 2007 and has been expanding since, capitalising on the significant growth opportunities offered by the US market. The organisation believes that the international payments needs of US customers are being underserviced and plans to bring its market-leading offering of cutting-edge technology and premium customer service, to a new audience.
Currencies Direct allows customers to make international payments to 120 countries in 40 currencies with competitive rates available both online and through their app. The service is supported by a dedicated account management team, allowing customers to speak directly to a currency expert who will handle their queries.
Neil Cooper, Chief Financial Officer at Currencies Direct Inc. said of the expansion: “We are seeing a huge demand from US customers for international payments services that offer both personalised service and innovative tech-based solutions. As such, we are delighted to be able to make these exact services available in Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island as part of our US roll-out.”
