It is an honour to launch our historic partnership with Leeds United. While Thomas and the boys excel on the pitch, we look forward to helping the club win off the pitch, delivering innovative currency solutions and huge savings. With Brexit causing exchange rate volatility, it’s important both the club and businesses of all sizes maximise the value of their foreign exchange activities.
Hard work, grit, ambition and innovation has made Leeds a major financial and entrepreneurial city. This ethos firmly reflects our own values and the partnership provides a tremendous platform to showcase our services to the wider Yorkshire business community.’
