About Us



The Currency Exchange Corporation (CEC) was established in 1999, by its chairman and CEO Mr Mike Cooke who has more than 25 years of experience in the Foreign Banknote trading business in the City of London. 

He is widely credited with introducing Commission Free Foreign Money Exchange in the early 1990's to the Exchange Markets in London to give customers optimum value for money without the necessity of costly handling charges.

This pioneering policy has today been adopted by many Foreign Currency suppliers throughout the UK for the benefit of millions of holidaymakers

It is these innovative and customer paramount principals that has helped spur the remarkable growth of  CEC in becoming one of the most sought after  "value-for-money" foreign exchange specialists in London.

Today the Currency Exchange Corporation operates numerous retail outlets in and around London servicing the foreign currency requirements of more than one million customers.
