Published // 2nd March 2020
Crown Agents Bank, a UK regulated wholesale provider of foreign exchange and cross-border payments services, has been shortlisted in the Financial Times’ annual FT 1000 – Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies 2020.
Now in its fourth year, the FT’s list – in partnership with Statista – identifies European companies that have achieved the highest compound annual growth rate in revenue between 2015 and 2018. The inclusion of such a prestigious league table pays tribute to Crown Agents Bank’s ongoing technology innovation, reflecting their nimble, efficient, and industry-leading FX capabilities.
Crown Agents Bank has over 185 years of experience in providing practical, consistent, and agile support to entities in emerging economies – offering clients its expertise in compliance controls and banking standards, whilst encouraging economic growth and financial inclusion in a socially and politically sustainable manner.
The bank’s innovative offering has been bolstered by the acquisition of the enterprise business and payment gateway product of Segovia – a US venture-backed technology company focused on frontier market payments – in the summer of 2019. The deal strengthened the bank’s ability to offer a uniquely scalable, flexible and efficient payment solution for global businesses paying money into frontier and developing markets. Since the acquisition, Crown Agents Bank has extended its payment network and FX capabilities, integrating Segovia’s mobile money solutions and modern payments infrastructure.
To be part of the FT’s esteemed Europe’s top 1000 companies demonstrates that this unique institution – which has heritage spanning almost two centuries – is a thoroughly modern bank using operational know-how, innovative technologies to be an effective partner to clients in the 21st century and beyond.
