Security and Regulation

When sending or receiving funds to and from abroad it is not just the best exchange rate you require, but the knowledge that you money is safe and secure. At Peregrine & Black-FX we take this aspect of our business seriously and as such we employ certain procedures to ensure the security of our clients' funds.
