As global trade activities grow, so does the volume of international remittances. Businesses that trade internationally need reliable commercial payment solutions they can trust. This is where BFC Bank comes in.

Banking services for SMEs

We know the importance of cost control for SMEs. This drives our commitment to absolute transparency in our pricing and margins. We make the total transaction cost (including FX spreads) completely visible. SMEs enjoy comprehensive service and support generally only available to larger companies.

Banking services for PSPs

PSPs who make cross-border payments must maintain a bank account at a regulated financial institution. BFC Bank is a perfect choice. Our services make international transactions simpler and more cost-effective. Non-bank PSPs can take advantage of our direct access to the Faster Payments Scheme (FPS). This payment gateway is usually only available to banks. As an FPS sponsored partner you can settle transactions in almost 'real time' to grow both your business and payment volumes.

High compliance standards

Compliance in today's financial ecosystem has never been more important. Banks must have a strong organisational compliance framework to adhere to regulation. Compliance is a strict responsibility among BFC Group's global businesses. Rigorous Know Your Customer (KYC) and Client Due Diligence (CDD) checks are carried out on all prospective clients prior to any commercial activity.

Committed to safe, reliable services

As pioneers of a new, tailored user experience, we are committed to deliver reliable and safe services. We help clients grow through product development and exemplary service.
