About us

We began trading in 2002 and a lot has changed in foreign exchange since then. 

One thing that has remained consistent is our focus on providing our clients with the best experience possible.

In 2016, Inflexion Private Equity became a majority shareholder of Global Reach Partners.

Inflexion is a private equity firm that invests in high growth businesses with ambitious management teams and works in partnership with them to accelerate growth. Inflexion’s flexible approach allows it to back both majority and minority investments, typically investing £10m to £200m of equity in each deal. 

Inflexion helps businesses achieve the next stage of their development through international expansion, operational improvements, digital expertise, access to Inflexion’s networks, and funding for acquisitions. 

In 2018, Inflexion retained a leading position in Preqin’s annual global league for consistently top-performing buyout funds. It is the only UK fund to be ranked in the top 10 and has also won a number of industry accolades for its success in growing the businesses it backs. 

Funds advised by Inflexion Private Equity Partners LLP have c.£4.5bn (CA$7.7bn) under management.

The history of
Global Reach Group

Our experts have been helping clients for 18 years and in this time we have grown to employ more than 200 talented people. Our clients have access to more than 140 currencies and in the last year alone, we transacted nearly £6bn (CA$10bn) of foreign currency.

We’ve built a superb team with outstanding foreign exchange knowledge at the core and we put our highly valuable skills to work for our clients every single day.

In 2016, we further bolstered our business with the backing of leading UK private equity firm, Inflexion Private Equity. They invest in high growth, entrepreneurial businesses with ambitious management teams, and work in partnership with them to deliver growth.

Also in 2016, we acquired FC Exchange, a leading international money transfer business specializing in helping individuals with their personal foreign exchange requirements.
The integration of FC Exchange into the wider Global Reach Group has meant that as well as being at the forefront of corporate foreign exchange, we are also able to offer the same level of service to private individuals.

In 2020, Global Reach Group, with the help of Inflexion, acquired key assets from what was previously EncoreFX Inc. and established a new Canadian entity—Global Reach Canada.
