Our Mission

Crown Agents Bank combines new digital capabilities and infrastructure with a unique network built up over almost two centuries.

Our services are designed to help our clients deliver FX and payments efficiently and securely. We are continually enhancing our offering to suit changing demands, integrating platform connectivity to make processing international payments simple.

Our acquisition of Segovia in 2019 demonstrates our continuing commitment to improving our products and services. By making FX and high-volume low value payments cheaper and more efficient through technology, we are helping our partners ensure that end-consumers and other beneficiaries receive more money in local currency, faster.

In turn, this means for example, that the people in greatest need across frontier and developing markets can access vital resources such as food and medication. Charities can mobilise on-the-ground teams quickly to distribute supplies in times of crisis. And individuals can receive support from loved ones abroad, to be able to afford a better quality of life.

We value fairness and transparency and operate to the highest possible standard on behalf of organisations including governments, international development organisations, banks and payment companies we partner with.
