Our mission

Fair. Focused. Forward

As an alternative to the high costs and complexity of banks, at iBanFirst we offer a simple, cost-effective and secure online solution for companies to make foreign exchange transactions. All accounts are free to create and keep if you make per year a minimum total of €100K currency conversions (or conversions with payments at the same time).

At iBanFirst we have no hidden fees. We charge only a fixed amount for each payment you make with us. And, thanks to our API, you have access to real-time exchange rates: this helps you to make your foreign exchange strategy more efficient because you can factor in market volatility.

We provide a simple, fast and transparent service. Also, we offer - for those clients who want it - something better than a customer-supplier relationship: whether you are a bank, broker or other type of business, we can provide you with a white labelling solution to offer our services directly to your own clients.

Our platform uses technology designed for clients: a service that’s always easy to use, safe and cost-effective. We think it revolutionises the way companies trade currencies.

Our values

FAIR because we offer an excellent service at a competitive price, unlike banks. In everything we do, we are fair and responsible in our conduct with our clients and suppliers.

FOCUSED because this is the key to excellence: Irrespective of what each member of our team does, everyone is dedicated and focused on doing and being the best they can be to achieve value for our clients. As a company, we have clear goals and focus on them, then make sure we deliver them successfully.

FORWARD because we want to provide real benefits and value for our clients, and to be a leader in the world of financial technology and banking as a service.

Our history

Entrepreneur Pierre-Antoine Dusoulier created iBanFirst in 2013 when he was president of Saxo Banque France (another company he also founded). Because of his success in creating and managing several companies, he truly understands the challenges faced by business leaders: including their need for fast, efficient, secure, and cost-effective services for their foreign payments (transactions). iBanFirst is an online multi-currency platform. We provide banking as a service and as an alternative to the high costs of traditional banks.

We know banks overcharge their clients for the international payments they make. With the 2009 European Directive, iBanFirst has embraced the opportunity to shake up the old rules for payment providers, by offering services for cross-border transactions. Our security and trust has been recognised by the National Bank of Belgium, which has accredited us.

At iBanFirst, we make foreign exchange payments and transfers easy for your company. And our cost-efficient, fast and secure online service is provided to you at a lower cost than the banks. Doing business with us means you can spend more time focusing profitably on your core business.
