Where The World's Moving

Welcome our new content series celebrating what it means to be a global citizen in the digital age

Some of the biggest global trends and innovations are being born out of the human desire to reach further, move faster and connect deeper. Advancements in technology, greater expectation for transparency, and a need for responsible living and business are just some of the most prevalent trends and ideas that challenge, question, and further our global society.

 

At OFX, our mission is to help you understand such movements through technology, people and insight; ultimately empowering our customers to thrive in a fast moving, ever-changing world. Enjoy the series and please share your experiences.

 The Values Behind Where The World's Moving

Action

We Believe in Action.

We are a company that believes good intentions, good meetings and good energy are of little value if nothing happens as a result. We are constantly testing, learning and sharing, passionate about moving things forward as a team to meet the changing needs of our customers. We are deliberately fastidious with our adherence to security and take a compliance-first attitude to all money transfers. 


Humanity

With Humanity.

In an increasingly automated world we never forget the power of the human touch. We have a genuine care for people be they staff, customers, partners or the wider community. We bring genuine sensitivity to the way we treat each-other and we understand and act on our wider responsibility to a more sustainable, equal and socially accountable world. 


Progress

To Deliver Progress.

We are a company that wants to reflect the best of where the world is going. We are committed to keep moving our technology, our systems, our service, our people and our customers forward. As the world never stops, never rests, never stops innovating, neither will we.
