Who are GC Partners?
What we do
We’re a specialist financial services provider. We move money overseas. Quickly, reliably, and securely. Using great foreign exchange rates. Whether you’re an individual looking to purchase a property overseas or a business that’s selling or buying goods from other countries, we can help. It doesn’t matter how large or small the payments are. From a substantial one-off property sale to regular ongoing payments, you can rely on us.
Why GC Partners?
Since 2003, we’ve made it simple for over 100,000 people like you to transfer money to more than 125 markets across the world. And, unlike other payments providers, GC Partners carry additional FCA permissions allowing us to hold client money under CASS rules. This allows us to offer a wider range of services to a broader spectrum of clients. This includes major international corporations, accountancy and legal practices, fund & bond managers, property developers and the institutional investment sector – as well as private clients. Bottom line… your money is always protected. And this isn’t the only reason we stand out.
Taking away your stress
Transferring funds overseas for the first time can feel stressful. At GC Partners, we take away the stress and the worry. Not just by solving any money transfer problem with better, faster, more flexible deals, but also by answering your questions. Putting you at ease. Providing a safe pair of hands throughout the process.
We do it in two ways
First by making currency simple – bypassing the complexity of how mainstream banks move and hold money. Giving you options they just don’t have. Second, you get to meet us face to face. With offices all over the world, you can talk to us in person about all your currency needs. And, because we’re on the ground, we’re perfectly placed to know your region and how other service providers, such as solicitors and estate agents, operate.
“We’re also experts in helping businesses pay international suppliers and receive payments from overseas clients. Fast, securely and with ease. Making payments run smoothly – every time.”
You’re always at the heart of our service. And our service is our currency.
Relax. Your money’s safe
The safety and security of your money is as important to us as it is to you. We take protecting your money very seriously. Each year we transact more than $5 billion in foreign exchange and make over 400,000 payments on behalf of clients, like you, to over 125 markets.
“We’re authorised and regulated in the UK by the FCA. Giving you the confidence and assurance that you need when we handle your money.”
Your money is kept in segregated client accounts known as ‘safeguarding’ accounts, using global Tier 1 banking partners. It means the funds are kept separately for security and to comply with regulations. They are not an asset of our company.
On top of all this, we hold significant insurance to cover Professional Indemnity, Directors and Officers, and cyber security.
Transactions you can trust
We never play with your money. We don’t speculate on the currency markets. Or invest your money overnight.
When you enter into a transaction with us, we enter a matching, irrevocable binding trade with our bank. This turns your sold currency into your bought currency, from which your outward payment is made.
Enjoy better exchange rates
Do you want the best exchange rate to buy a house abroad, to transfer a pension or pay school fees? Do you own a business paying employees in different countries or trading internationally, buying goods and services overseas? We will out perform the high street banks. And we make money transfers simple and stress-free.
Options you can’t get from your bank
We think you should be able to move your money in ways that suit you. Ways that your bank can’t offer. Like our buy-now-pay-later forward contract option. You fix the exchange rate before buying your house. So, you know exactly how much your property is costing you.
Make big savings on fees
International transfers can be costly. If you transfer your money overseas with your local bank you could be charged between EUR 15-30 for each transfer. It doesn’t sound much on a EUR 250,000 transfer to buy a property but the costs can add up. Especially if you are transferring money every month to pay a mortgage, bills or just moving your savings home. As we cover your currency transfer charges, this cost saving applies everywhere in the world you’re sending
“Our solution removes unnecessary international payment fees and saves you money”
Stay informed and looked after
Stay informed with our regular updates on exchange rates and movements in the market. When you’re informed and up-to-date, it’s easier to decide when the time is right to transfer your money.
But you don’t have to decide on your own. Your dedicated account manager will get to know you and understand your needs, then suggest the best options available to help you transfer your money.
Your experienced, FX market specialist is just a call or email away.
