“Moving our family away from South Africa was challenging enough, so having Currency Assist help us transfer our funds offshore was invaluable. Not only did they save us around R30,000 per R1M we sent compared to what the banks quoted us, their service delivery was second to none. What a great team, we couldn’t recommend them highly enough”

“One thing I noticed when using Currency Assist was just how easy the whole process was. They had a bank account open for me within the same day, I received rate alerts via whatsapp and market commentary via email, I just knew I was working with the right team. Sure they saved me money, but it is the service that I will remember”.

“What a difference Currency Assist made to our business. We don’t have time to watch the markets, we are too busy with our own customers. But since we started with Currency Assist it is like having our own in house treasury, we couldn’t be happier”.

“The amount of time saved when engaging Currency Assist meant we could process our clients faster and receive a referral commission.”
