Celebrating 20 Years of Global Success with GC Partners

Today, we are raising our glasses to GC Partners as they mark two decades in foreign exchange. Founded by Martin Cox, GC Partners has grown with offices in the UK, Spain, Portugal, Dubai, and Hong Kong. Their growth story is one of unwavering commitment to clients and has been the key to their success.

A Timeline of Success

GC Partners’ journey started in 2003, with their headquarters in the UK, at that time called Global Currency Exchange Network. They soon branched into Spain in 2004, Portugal in 2005 and Dubai in 2006. A name change in 2019 to GC Partners coincided with possibly the company’s biggest decision to date – to become an Employee Ownership Trust. Most recently, they ventured into Hong Kong in 2022.

Building Trust, One Transaction at a Time

Last year, GC Partners successfully transferred over $20 billion for their clients. Their track record of success has led to over 150,000 global clients who trust GC Partners for their international transactions. GC Partners’ commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction is evident in their outstanding Trustpilot rating of 4.9, a testament to the exceptional service they provide. 

Portugal: Building Lasting Relationships and Expertise

In Portugal, GC Partners’ 18-year presence has enabled them to foster strong relationships with lawyers and estate agents. They understand the intricacies of buying a house in Portugal and have deep knowledge of the local banking landscape. They believe their dedicated teams worldwide make them different from their competitors. 

Business Development Manager Rachel Canales emphasises the importance of having a local presence: “Our location, first-class service, and strategic partnerships within each country have been invaluable in helping our clients seamlessly navigate the foreign exchange markets. Our local knowledge and close contacts with all involved in the property purchase and sale transaction makes the process much simpler for our clients.”

A Future Full of Promise 

As the company celebrates 20 years of service, its commitment to innovation and our clients remains stronger than ever. With a proven track record and a solid global presence, GC Partners is poised to embrace future opportunities. 

Hayley McKay, their Business Development Manager, commented: “As we have grown over the years, our focus has always been on looking after the core property buyers and sellers who trust us with their transactions. But, as our reach expanded, so did our dedication to serving the needs of a broader audience. From expats seeking seamless money transfers to businesses and investors with international interests, our mission remains the same: to provide personalised and reliable financial solutions to all clients. We take pride in being a trusted partner for every individual and entity, ensuring their financial journey is as smooth and successful as possible.”
