Markets are experiencing serious disruption due to the economic fallout from the global contagious spread of COVID-19.

Direct FX (NZ & AU) continues to operate as usual and offers all our regular services. We have contingency plans for any serious deterioration in circumstances and restrictions on group operations (social distancing). Day to day operations continue and if you are experiencing any difficulties, in terms of FX/Banking requirements, please do not hesitate to contact the dealers.

Important Clarification vs

Our company, Direct FX Ltd (, registered in New Zealand in 2001, is fully licenced by the New Zealand Financial Markets Authority (FMA) and Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC). We continue to fulfil all our obligations under our dual licences with no outstanding issues.

A completely unrelated Australian company, that operated from the website, has had their ASIC licence revoked and has now gone into receivership. There is not, nor has there ever been, any connection between these two companies in any way.
