LONDON, May 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Currencies Direct, the leading international payments provider, has announced plans for further expansion in the US after receiving regulatory approval to operate in New Jersey and Washington.
The move represents a significant expansion for the UK-based payments service, which has seen a 37% growth in turnover year on year in the US. It currently operates in Florida, Georgia 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.
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're thrilled to be able to offer our service to a larger US audience. We're seeing clear demand among customers and increased volumes of payments to and from the US and Europe.
"We believe that US customers simply don't have the breadth of choice available to those in Europe – our aim is to fill that gap."
Hardik Shah, Group Head of Product at Currencies Direct, commented: "With major players recently exiting the marketplace, we see significant opportunity in this US expansion and are responding to clear calls from customers, who value our offering of both personalised service and innovative tech-based solutions."
