Family Office Foreign Exchange

A family office is an organisational structure that manages the financial and personal affairs of a wealthy family where the office is driven purely by the needs and preferences of the underlying family.

There is no standard for how one should be structured. For instance, some single-family offices are lean enterprises that focus exclusively on investing with a skeleton crew while others are robust organisations with in-house staff, numerous vendor relationships and a broad platform of services. This disparity means it’s difficult to establish hard-and-fast criteria for how a single-family office should be defined other than its dedication to a sole family.

What is sure, no matter what, service and value for money is always demanded

Ralph Wado Emerson, the great American Essayist of the 19th century once said...

“It requires a great deal of boldness and a great deal of caution to make a great fortune, and when you have it, it requires ten times as much skill to keep it”

On a global platform for the 21st century - where fortunes are made in a heartbeat as a You tube gamer or a bitcoin speculator – we still must provide access to competitive markets, and FO – FOX provides just that.

Why use


I have spent years saying to FX clients:

Proof of the pudding is in the eating

It truly is

One Middle Eastern family office channelled all his FX through us because we simply agreed to take a fixed margin on every trade whether it was £500 or $50m – it was fixed in stone – same margin

And everyone knew that as long as we were consistent we would have that relationship for life And we did!

And that is where our mantra was born from - try us - just once - we won't let you down as we want to be your ‘friend for life’ - not just for one transaction. We are here for the long term not just for a financial year.

  • tick You need easy sign up
  • tick You need a reliable service
  • tick YOU NEED SAVINGS and no TT fees


Simple scenario

You want to buy an apartment or pay the mooring fees in the Med

This biggest aggravation is paying excessive commission to do a standard currency conversion then to add insult to injury £30-£40-£50 for the TT payment.

Our clients are demand a sterling service – and that’s what they get!

Example of Financial Savings and No €xchange Rate Risk


Mr M’s FO advisers wanted to buy his villa in Spain at 1.7m €uros.

So first off, Mr M bought his 170,000 €uros at €/£ spot rate and sent the 10% deposit to his Spanish solicitor.

2,400 €uros saved v a BIG high street bank rate, and no fee to send €uros to Spain.

The 90% balance was due in 4-6 weeks time, but did not know exactly when it had to be paid.


Rather than run the gauntlet over currency fluctuations with BREXIT uncertainty over the pound – The FO decided to buy the 90% balance one month forward – taking advantage of fixing a forward rate price for 4 weeks time. Full settlement on maturity.

Advantages of using this service

  • tick Locked in a rate and removed the risk of BREXIT exchange rate volatility
  • tick Rate was significantly better than ‘incumbent’ FX provider
  • tick Saving was 13,400 € against what a standard Private Bank would have charged on the 1.53m € balance.
