About Caxton FX - Caxton | Prepaid Currency Card and International Payments

Skip to the content

We are all about payments, people and technology

Caxton started out in 2002 as an ambitious FX startup. With only £25,000, one phone and an advert on Google, the company has since grown organically to a turnover exceeding £1bn.

Our mission back then was to offer great value and service to private clients and companies, helping reduce the risk on their currency trades. That focus on service and value has not changed but the way we deliver it has.

Caxton pioneered the use of online platforms and currency cards to offer customers simpler, quicker, safer and more cost-effective payments. We have combined the latest technology and currency expertise with an old-fashioned dedication to providing outstanding customer service.

Our platform facilitates payments around the world for businesses, private clients, and travellers. And our Enterprise Payments service enables transactions to be processed seamlessly for our corporate clients.

We process more than 7.3 million transactions a year for hundreds of thousands of people who have placed their trust in us. That’s more than €1 for every man, woman and child on this planet.

And behind it all sits our team of amazing people – every person has a part to play in ensuring our clients get the very best value and service.

Why Choose Caxton?

Whether you want sophisticated risk management tools for your business or bank-beating rates for your travel money, we offer a complete range of services for companies and private clients. No other payments or currency business can provide the range that we can, backed up by amazing service from our great team.

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.
