The office has been opened due to a high demand in international payments and FX services in the North West. This is being driven by the number of businesses expanding their trade overseas.

According to a survey conducted by Manchester City Council in 2015 found that 26% of businesses were involved in international trade, up from 20% in 2008.

Stuart Holmes, general manager EMEA for AFEX said: “The North West, with its strong business community and highly developed and growing import and export market, is a key market for us.”

“We’ve seen an increasing amount of interest and activity from businesses across the region as they look to maximise their international growth potential and we are excited to be extending our UK operation. Manchester was a natural choice of location for us and we look forward to providing local firms with an even better and more tailored service to address their global payment, treasury and risk management needs.”
