Leading Currency Firms OANDA And World First Forge New Partnership

Founded in the mid-1990s, OANDA uses innovative computer and financial technology to provide web-based foreign exchange trading and currency information services to everyone, from individuals to large corporations, portfolio managers to financial institutions.

World First is one of the fastest growing foreign exchange companies in the world, with offices in the UK, Australia, the US and Singapore. The company was set up in 2004, by founders Nick Robinson and Jonathan Quin, who met whilst working at Citigroup.

Jonathan Quin, CEO at World First, said:

“OANDA is a great brand and I’m very happy that they’ve chosen us to support their offer.

“World First has forged a reputation for great exchange rates and award winning service in the last ten years, a fact which we’re very proud of.

“We’ll be making sure that OANDA’s clients receive the same industry-leading levels of support which our own customers have become accustomed to.”

Trevor Young, Vice President of Product Development, OANDA Corporation, said:

"At OANDA, we're always looking for new offerings and partnerships that will benefit our clients and as one as the largest foreign exchange companies in the sector, and the fastest growing, we are thrilled to partner with World First."

“Our Currency Converter is a very popular tool with travellers around the world, and now those users will also have an exceptional international payments solution at their fingertips with the World First Partnership.”
