Founded in 2017 by Oliver Carson and Dhaval Patel, Universal Partners FX provides international payments and currency hedging solutions to businesses and individuals alike.

The company offers multiple services. They primarily help their clients navigate international waters, helping them complete safe and fast transfers across borders around the globe. They’ll also help streamline other aspects of international payments, giving users access to the hedging tools they need to mitigate risk posed by currency fluctuations. The typical customer is a business trading £50,000 or more in foreign currency each month.

The company states aims to be an integral part of client's business rather than merely an outsourced agency.

One example of these clients? Corporations in the middle of switching currency providers, drawn to Universal Partners FX for its reputation for thoroughness. The company states it aims “to be an integral part of our client's business rather than merely an outsourced agency,” a goal it accomplishes with a team of analysts as well as a dedicated account manager who delves into the nature of their client’s business in order to put together a customised strategy.

The right long-term strategy can streamline currency transfers enough to potentially add thousands of pounds to bottom-line profits.

This process helps the company stand apart from similar services, which might instead rely on tech solutions that make the process easy rather than look ahead towards identifying set objectives to address.

The right long-term strategy can streamline currency transfers enough to potentially add thousands of pounds to bottom-line profits. In our increasingly connected world, those benefits add up, forming an essential cog that helps do its part to keep the global economic system chugging along.
