British FinTech Currensea enables consumers and SMEs to make purchases from or while abroad, without the foreign exchange charges normally applied by banks. Thanks to its use of Open Banking technology, Currensea’s debit card works with your existing banking account so you don’t need to worry about inconvenient prepaid cards and different currency accounts.
Founded by Barclays and JPMorgan alumni in 2018, Currensea has since amassed over £5m in funding, become the world’s first Card Based Payment Instrument Issuer (CBPII), and launched its consumer and business propositions in 2020.
It has recently been named a finalist in the innovation category of the British Bank Awards 2021 as well as winning Open Banking Product or Service of the year at the FSTech Awards 2021, and Best International Payments, Remittance of use of FX at the Emerging payments awards 2021.
