About FOREX Bank
FOREX Bank 50 år
We sell basic banking services with personal service and high availability.
From a barber shop to over 110 branches in four countries. It all started at Gyllenspets barber shop at Stockholm Central Station. Gyllenspets learnt that many of his customers were tourists, who also was in need of currencies (local and foreign). With time, his barber shop turned into a small foreign exchange bureau that was run up until the 1960s by the Swedish State Rail Authority.
In 1965, travel agent Rolf Friberg, FOREX Bank’s former CEO, was offered the opportunity to buy the foreign exchange bureau business to be able to provide a foreign currency service to his travel agency’s customers.
Until the beginning of the 1990s, FOREX Bank was the only company besides the banks that was licensed by the Swedish Central bank to trade in currencies.
FOREX Bank became a bank in 2003, and is currently the market-leading foreign exchange bureau in the Nordic region. In addition to foreign exchange, FOREX Bank currently offers several competitive bank services in Sweden.
We have more than 110 branches in Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway. We welcome you to one of your branches where we will be happy to serve you.
