Voltrex becomes the first non-bank FX company to offer a browser-based FX trading and payments platform streaming over fifty currency pairs with real-time tradeable prices.
Voltrex FX and payments business becomes a separate corporate entity dedicated to providing foreign currency trading and payments as well as client driven solutions. The new company is named VFX Financial PLC headed by Nick England, Clive Shelton and Stephen Brawn and one of the early pioneers of the sector now known as “Fintech”.
