Spotlight - Foreign Exchange Transaction Cost Optimisation Service

We are delighted to announce our new partnership with Spotlight.

Spotlight has invented one of the world's first foreign exchange transaction cost audit solutions designed for SMEs and mid-sized firms. Their proprietary audit system uses artificial intelligence to help business leaders reduce their exchange rate mark-ups by up to 95%.
