GC Partners Celebrates 20 Years of Service

News & Insights

We started GC Partners in 2003 as Global Currency Exchange Network Lt and over the last 20 years we have helped over 150,000 global customers’, from 100 countries, totalling £20 billion in transactions, per annum, in over 60 different currencies.

What started as a team of three and a Rolodex has now expanded into a global team, just shy of 100 employees, many of which have been with the business since the early days. Our one office has turned into six, including offices in Portugal, Dubai and Hong Kong.

CEO and Founder Martin Cox founded the business in 2003 after identifying a gap in the market when he was trying to transfer money himself and soon came a pioneer of foreign exchange.

Over the last 20 years he has led the international expansion of the business through changes in the market, a company rebrand and a global pandemic. Through all of that, the business only continues to grow at an exceptional rate – all thanks to the drive and the passion of our employees and their dedication to customer service.

Cox talks about the history of the business and how he ensures the business continues with an ethos he is proud of.

“This twenty-year milestone for GC Partners is a testament to our exceptional employees and the relationships they have built with our clients. GC Partners started off with a small group of people and an idea but it is our exceptional customer service and our bespoke offering that has allowed our business to go from strength to strength.”

Our dedication to customer service and our passion for the industry has resulted in GC Partners being one of the highest-ranked foreign currency exchange providers on Trustpilot with a rating of 4.9 with 2,000+ reviews.

“We pride ourselves on being able to offer our clients the very best service as a result of the knowledge and insights we’ve gained over the last twenty years. As we look forward to the future, we are focused on continuing to develop our client offering, to ensure that we have the most complete solution in the market,” says Chief Commercial Officer Andrew Fundell.

“This includes expansion into new geographies, investment in cutting-edge technology and adding new product lines to enhance our solution, allowing us to continue to offer a bespoke service for our clients across the globe and I look forward to being able to offer our service globally to a growing number of clients.”

We look forward to seeing what the future has in store for GC Partners, watch this space to see what exciting new things lay ahead.
