James Lynn, Co-Founder at Currensea

James spent two decades in foreign exchange of the world’s largest banks, such as Barclays and Credit Agricole. Originally launched as a B2C proposition before expanding the offering in 2021, Currensea offers users savings of 85%-100% on overseas spending by removing the normal foreign exchange fees leveraged by banks and other card providers.

In addition to saving money on FX fees, Currensea users can opt to donate some or all of their these savings on sustainability initiatives – these donations have planted over 100,000 trees and removed over 3m plastic bottles from the ocean.
