Security you can trust

We are trusted by more than 40,000 registered clients, and we do over 100,000 transactions per year.

Your money is in safe hands

The security of your funds and your data is very, very important to us. We keep all funds in designated client accounts, and data and transaction information stay on a secure, encrypted portal with a host of security features.

We use secure socket layer (or “SSL”) technology to offer you the best possible protection. However, transactions over the internet always create some security risks. It’s important, then, that you protect all your passwords and access codes, to minimise the risk of unauthorised transactions. Never write down any passwords or access codes, and never choose an obvious code (like a birth date or telephone number) that could be guessed by others.
