Core Business Solutions and Frank Exchange form strategic alliance to bring foreign exchange services with no fees and no hidden extras to UK businesses

Core Business Solutions is dedicated to enhancing the commercial success of ambitious companies by providing them with the help they need to grow their businesses. Providing advice and support, for businesses wanting to develop internationally – and delivering a range of essential support services to SMEs – Core is committed to helping businesses maximise their potential in overseas markets.

Core is pleased to announce the latest strategic alliance under its Service Partner Program with Frank Exchange, who provide corporate foreign exchange and payment services to businesses and organisations involved in overseas transactions. And the benefit for Core clients of working with the Frank Exchange team is that they have no transfer fees or extra charges over and above the agreed FX rate!

Payment services for Frank Exchange are provided by The Currency Cloud* who are fully FCA authorised. They have an outstanding national reputation and come with ringing endorsements from their existing customers. Their services are ideal for paying overseas suppliers and expenses, making loan payments to an overseas parent company, and hedging against currency fluctuations.

“Under our Service Partner Program, we can now offer our clients the full range of Frank Exchange’s foreign exchange services,” says Core’s Chairman, John Holmes, “and in turn, they will be able to offer their clients access to Core’s extensive range of business capabilities.”

“Frank Exchange are absolutely committed to delivering honesty, integrity and transparency in the world of foreign money exchange transactions,” says John Holmes. “Their team consists of dedicated professionals who are passionate about providing the highest quality of service to customers. Their experience in the financial sector ranges from management and leadership to responsible investment and public relations.”

Leading the initiative at Frank Exchange are John Hall, Founder/Director and Victoria Noble, Director. John has over 15 years’ experience of working with leading corporate foreign money exchange providers, and Victoria has more than 20 years’ experience in sectors ranging from foreign exchange and payments to local Government, compliance, NHS, leisure, retail, manufacturing, and E-commerce.

As John Holmes remarks: “John, Victoria and the Frank Exchange team have a skill-set that is founded on an in-depth understanding of commercial money markets – and I’m confident that they will provide exactly the right match of services to Core’s clients’ international monetary needs.”
