    The Story Behind HiFX

    Founded out of frustration with the banking sector in 1998 by Shaun Taylor (current Executive Director), Laurence Butcher (current CEO) and Matthew Knowles (current Group Managing Director). HiFX stands for Halewood International Foreign Exchange Limited.

    HiFX has offices in New Zealand since 2001 and in San Francisco since 2004. In 2014, the company was bought by the Euronet Worldwide group, thereby joining Ria and XE.

    • Why you can trust Monito's reviews

      Monito's mission is to help you (and thousands of others each day) find the best providers for your money transfers.

      We do that by providing real-time comparison of exchange rates and fees (you can use the form below to make a comparison) and by writting in-depth reviews about money transfer providers.

      We have partnerships with many money transfer providers (HiFX included), which help us get access to their exchange rate and fees information (which we always check for accuracy). Those partnerships help us support our activity and offer our service for free.

      We put a lot of efforts to review money transfer providers like HiFX in details and based on objective and verifiable criteria. A good example of that is the in-depth User Experience Benchmark Study we conducted in August 2018.
