Bank beating international money transfers
For you & your business

HiFX: here for you during the EU Referendum

With just hours to go before Britain votes on whether to remain in the EU and opinion polls suggesting the referendum will be close, the Pound is likely to experience significant volatility, whatever the outcome.

Whilst at least two international money transfer providers have, in effect, shut their doors to new transfers until the results are known, as we are one of the largest non-bank providers and part of Nasdaq listed Euronet Worldwide Inc. (EEFT), we’ll be open for business throughout the referendum 24 hours a day*.

As the big day approaches, with the polls neck and neck, here are some things to consider if you need to make international payments:
