Celebrating 25 years of OFX

25 years ago OFX was born in pursuit of a better and cheaper way to send money globally, whilst uncompromising on great service. 

Since then we’ve grown considerably, and the spirit to always do better for our clients and people continues to guide our decisions today.

Behind our success is our OFXperts

As we look back on the last 25 years, we know it’s our global team that got us here. From our specialist dealers and customer service, to operations, compliance, and everything in between – our global OFXperts are the backbone of the business and here to help 24/7.  So it seemed only right to shine a light on some of our OFXperts who have been with us since our very early days.

We’re grateful to our clients all over the world, who trust us to move their money

As OFX turns 25, it seemed fitting to spotlight some of the clients who have been there from the very beginning (or just about), and who continue to use our services for their personal and business global money transfer needs to this day.
