TorFX is a company regulated by both FCA and ASIC:

  • FCA is the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK
  • ASIC is the Australian Securities and Investments Commission

Press and Awards:

TorFX have strived to make a name for themselves and have kept providing a high standard in their services. It is, therefore, no surprise that appreciations have been posted all over the internet. But the biggest grade of satisfaction will appear when you can win an award from your peers. And TorFX have done just that, winning prestigious awards such as:

  • Sunday Times Fasttrack 100 awards, 2nd Place (2008), 23rd Place (2010)
  • Credit Level 1, Dun & Bradstreet
  • Best European Currency Broker, Overseas Living Magazine, (2010, 2011).
  • Winning the Cornwall Business Award for Most Dynamic Growth Business (2014).

But there are also a lot of articles regarding the service provided by TorFX in mainstream news outlets. If you want to take a look at them, be sure to visit their Media page.

It must be noted that TorFX has also been questions in link with Crown Currency Exchange which has closed, leaving many clients unhappy. It appears the Financial Conduct Authority has not found any links proving the two companies have joint liability, and thus, TorFX’ reputation was maintained.


Registration Process:

In order to register to TorFX’s online platform, you will need to complete four simple steps. Bellow I will try to explain and help you get through it quickly.

Step 1:

The first thing you need to do is to choose the type of account you would like – Personal or Business. If you don’t really know where you stand or which option will better suit you, be sure to give them a call prior to registration and they will provide a free consultation.

For the purpose of this TorFX review, I will choose the personal account type.

Step 2:

To make sure you get access to the right services, you will need to choose the type of service you are interested in: Transfers, Regular Payments or Travel Money.

This doesn’t mean that if it’s necessary to change your requirements you will need to make another account. This is mostly so that they can provide a better and quicker service to you.

Step 3:

Are you using this account alone or do you want other people to have access to it as well? Depending on your response, you will need to opt for a Single or Joint account.
