The secret of our success

Fast growth through amazing customer service:

We have achieved extraordinary growth by being at the front of innovation and offering amazing customer service. We were the very first FX company to provide online international payments, and launched the first currency card free of all POS fees and ATM withdrawal charges when used overseas. Our innovation does not stop there; we have developed state of the art systems which help us achieve highly competitive FX pricing for our customers, effectively and efficiently.

Security and trust:

Unlike our competitors we do not pay any commission to our account managers. This means you can be guaranteed a pressure-free trade and an independent view on how you can get the best value from your exchange. Caxton FX is regulated by the FCA under the FSMA 2000 and the Payment Services Regulations. All client funds are held as ‘client money’ in designated client trust accounts at EU institutions and are ring-fenced to safeguard them in the case of a financial crisis. Caxton undertakes rigorous daily reconciliations of its client accounts to ensure client funds are held safely and to comply with its regulatory obligations.
