Foreign exchange partner

Commencing October 2016, Briars is delighted to announce its new partnership with UKForex, (USForex and the entire OFX Group) to be the preferred choice for Briars’ clients currency exchange and payments needs. Better foreign exchange rates are a big benefit for people and companies going global including:

  • small to medium enterprise businesses that pay overseas suppliers, developers and sales teams or that receive payments from international customers;
  • professional advisors seeking better rates for their international clients, both individuals and corporations; and,
  • individuals with foreign asset requirements ranging from real estate to family obligations.

When asked about this new venture, Kate Jolly, CEO of Briars said “We constantly seek innovative ways to maximise what our clients can achieve. Through this alliance, our clients benefit financially and as a direct result, in an environment where cash is king, are able to release funds for use elsewhere in their business. This is a great step forward for our clients. With existing Briars coverage across 46 countries, our new partnership continues to achieve our goal of making our clients, no matter how large or small, much more competitive.”

Jason Kumpf, Director of Alliance Partnerships at USForex, added; “With Briars’ dedication to helping its clients initiate and improve their global business, we are honoured to be their partner. By offering great foreign exchange rates, an easy to use platform and 24/7 service, this is a perfect additional service for Briars who seek ways to help their clients better manage their currency exposure, risks and rates.”

The Problem

For many years, transferring money to other countries has been an expensive and protracted affair. This continues to be the case today – more so in light of recent economic shifts across Europe and further afield. The team at Briars sought to find a way to enable our clients to move monies quickly, reduce their costs and minimise risk, irrespective of the countries or currencies involved.

The Solution

This is where the OFX Group stepped in. Through the linkup between both organisations’ service offerings, Briars clients can now remove most bank charges, speed up the transfer time on their funds and save significantly by receiving better foreign exchange rates than the typical bank offers, all at no additional cost to the client.
