The UK's fastest growing foreign exchange firm World First has been awarded a National Business Award for customer focus.

2007 Young Gun and World First co-founder Nick Robinson received the prize at an awards ceremony at The Grosvenor House Hotel last night.

With offices already in London and Sydney the foreign exchange firm recently launched World First USA Inc, where it continues to offer individuals and businesses improved rates for currency transfers.

World First was recognised for its impressive client service at the awards ceremony, which featured guest speakers including prime minister David Cameron, and Olympic gold medallist Jessica Ennis.

Co-founder Jonathan Quin commented: “We're delighted that the hard work of our growing team has been recognised by the judges. It's fitting that we've won in the ‘customer focus' category because the entire company ethos is based on placing the client experience at the centre of the business.

“We offer the kind of personalised, private banking style service that is usually reserved for a select few top tier clients by the big banks. There is always someone available to help when our clients call. And we always answer the phone within three rings. We don't like talking to automated machines, so why should our clients?”
