Our Story

AquireFX gives you an FX money transfer service, that we want to use. A service that lets you access the wholesale FX market and tells you the cost. A service where simplicity and quality shows in every step.

Before AquireFX, we noticed that somehow the rate we expected was never the one we got. So, our international payments always seemed to cost more than we wanted. We set up AquireFX to give us the FX rate we expected, for a cost we could understand.

Using AquireFX you get access to the same market rates we use for the same price we pay.

AquireFX is Melbourne based, and founded by Steve McKenna and Bruce Macfarlane. We have both co-founded listed companies, and we bring financial and technology experience.
