About Us


Curexe's mission is to make it easy for businesses to move money around the world and at a lower price.

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 total funds transferred!

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.

Our Team

Our Founder & Chief Executive Officer

Johnathan Holland's experience comes from a decade of learning about capital markets and a relentless pursuit of providing better customer experiences in the payments and currency exchange industry. Johnathan’s advantage has been to look at the currency exchange industry in a new light, which enabled him to create a new, better way to empower the businesses that are underserved by their current solutions.

Johnathan graduated from the 2016 cohort of the Next 36 accelerator program that helps young entrepreneurs build high impact businesses and is currently running the company out of the DMZ.
