About Us

Mission

Curexe's mission is to provide banking products (loans, payments etc.) that help small businesses grow.


Our Story

When Johnathan was building his first business, it was not clear what his bank was charging him to simply send money to another country. He quickly realised how expensive the hidden foreign exchange fees were, they take upwards of 5% of everything!

It was out of this deceitful system of hidden fees that Curexe was built to provide a solution that was honest and transparent. Our fee is only 1% for each and every time you need to send money worldwide or when you need to exchange currency.

We have a lot more banking horror stories from unsatisfied businesses and are in the process of fixing all of these problems. Stay Tuned.
