How the TPOFX Service Works •

The TPOFX platform is a web based service giving our clients the ability to execute FX transactions in a wide range of currencies.

These involve: – a payment from the client’s account to FTT. – a delivery to a designated second account anywhere in the world – which can, but does not have to, be in the name of the client.

There are three basic types of transaction: 1. spot

2. forward

3.order contract

An exchange of currency at the current exchange rate.

A transaction for a date in the future locking in a specified exchange rate. These can be used by individuals and businesses to fix a given rate and provide protection against future exchange rate movements.

This enables a client to select a rate of exchange that they would like to achieve. It includes take profit, collar and stop loss orders. Our systems will then monitor the global FX market, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. If that rate becomes available at anytime our systems will automatically book the payment for the client and inform them immediately by email.


• Setting up new accounts is quick and easy, normally taking only a few hours. Once an account is opened the client will be provided with log in details, a username and a password. The client can then access our live exchange rates online and, if required, can book a transaction. • Once a transaction has been accepted the client simply has to transfer the funds to pay for the amount in ‘home’ currency and then specify to where the ‘foreign’ currency should be delivered. In the case of spot transactions this will usually take place during the same working day. • Alternatively, clients can telephone TPO FX Services who will execute the transaction on the platform on their behalf. • The platform not only provides full functionality for managing foreign exchange payments, but also gives access to reports detailing past transactions. • At each step, a confirmation email will be sent to the pre-determined client email.
