On June 21, 2017, WorldFirst has changed its previous logo to an eye-catching new logo. This change reflects the new tone that WorldFirst wishes to convey to its clients and prospective clients: serious, straightforward, and no “fluff” transactions.
In addition to the new logo and website design that has been initiated, World First has also decided to increase its levels of transparency. If you choose an account type, you will be able to view live rates in the same fashion as on Transferwise‘s website. View our re-branding news item here.
Considering the evidence above, and the fact that the former deputy governor of the Bank of England, Sir David Clementi, serves as the chairman of the board, we conclude that World First is highly secure, credible and very safe. Moreover, it’s one of the fastest-growing businesses in the UK, which definitely attests to the level of satisfaction from clients.
