If you’ve been away on holiday, no doubt you’ve tweeted a picture of your favourite view, picked up some great gifts at the duty free, and enjoyed a few too many nights out on your debit card; only to return home to a bank balance that gives you a similar feeling of being punched quite hard in the stomach. With hidden charges added every time you use your bank or credit card abroad, suddenly your fantastic time abroad is spoilt . So if you want to ensure that your money goes further when abroad, this month’s client spotlight company is one you need to know about.

Caxton FX was founded in 2002 by Rupert Lee-Browne out of an ambition to bring international payments into the 21st century. Whether you were using Twitter or sending an email, it didn’t matter what country you were in; you could still tweet the same tweet, whether it was on top of the Alps or at the top of the Shard. However, when it came to handling money overseas, things still seemed to be quite a few decades behind, and it was for this reason that Caxton FX was founded.

As a specialist in currency exchange, Caxton FX looks after both corporate and retail customers providing a wide range of services including online international payments, a full telephone dealing option, and prepaid currency cards.

Caxton FX is the market leader in prepaid currency cards. These cards allow customers a secure and convenient way to buy travel money. Money is loaded onto the Visa card at the current exchange rate (which is usually the best rate available) and you can use the card abroad knowing that you won’t incur any additional or hidden charges.

Simply go to www.caxtonfx.com and apply for a card, and you will then receive it within five working days.

Over 350,000 people have signed up for the cards, making it no surprise that for the fifth year running Caxton FX has won the award for Best Travel Prepaid Card at the Prepaid365 Prepaid Card Awards, in addition to being recognised by Which? Money and in the Consumer Moneyfacts Awards.

“As a fast growing dynamic business we needed a law firm and lawyers who understand the entrepreneurial spirit of Caxton FX, in addition to the regulatory and corporate challenges a FCA regulated company faces, Keystone was a natural choice and with specialists in every area of law, so they are able to assist with all of our needs.”
