"Great agency, passionate about what they do and what we do – perfect! Very much appreciate their honesty and creativity." ING Direct (UK)
We're a collective of highly trained digital professionals working as an online financial communications agency, with a heritage of providing strategic advice which we measure against commercial goals.
We've been entrusted with some major corporate and high finance brands in the online space and so we provide a high level of boutique service. We believe if something is worth doing, it's worth doing very, very well.
And to do that you need experience. You'll only find specialists at our place and you'll find a digital agency with more than 15 years history of consistently delivering against that promise for our clients.
And to support our digital advisory service we utilise The Currency Software Platform which has been used in corporate actions and transactions with total deal values exceeding $300 billion.
Josh has led The Currency since co-founding the agency (then as @www) in 1996 and has overseen the output of its work for top-tier clients internationally and the growth of its offices in London & Sydney.
In this time he has built an independent agency staffed only with experienced digital specialists across a spectrum of skills to provide our clients with a boutique level of advice but with an execution capability rivaling any large agency.
The proof is in the pudding as they say and Josh believes our client list and our portfolio of work confirms the ethos of the business.
