We started using the currency exchange services offered by James when we started More Mountain over 12 years ago. Since then we have used him regularly for business and private transactions, business expansion, house purchases and property development. The level of service in terms of advice both reactive and proactive, speediness of transactions and knowledge of our business needs has been second to none. When you deal with James you are dealing with somebody who takes the time to understand your needs and circumstances, not a massive faceless organisation. I always have done, and will continue to recommend him to anyone needing currency exchange services or advice.
Jon Dredge, Business Owner
More Mountain, Morzine
When we decided to purchase a chalet in the French Alps, one of the daunting tasks was the need to finance the transaction in another currency. After a good deal of shopping around we settled with James from Alpine FX to help us move money from GBP to Euros. I was a little suspicious of the rates we would get so I took the trouble to check with two banks and an alternative source including my own private banking arrangement. The rates offered by James were by far the best and the service was very fast and efficient. Also, due to delays in the setup of a French bank account, we needed James to make a number of direct transfers to pay for furniture and services as well as transferring funds for the house purchase. Everything worked like clockwork and James was always just a call away. I will certainly be recommending him to anyone who is in need of FX services and will also be asking him to assist us if so needed in the future.
Keith Russell, Non Executive Director
We used Alpine FX to purchase our Chalet in France. They were extremely efficient and gave us a very competitive exchange rate from Pounds to Euros. Our transaction was quite complicated and James and his team were extremely helpful with this, including sorting out last minute changes to the transfer. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend Alpine FX.

Michael has looked after all my personal and business currency purchasing for the last 10 years. Michael has been invaluable in helping to find solutions to all our currency requirements, ranging from buying a property in France to using forward contracts to protect us from volatility in the Euro/Sterling exchange rate. In an increasingly faceless world it is great to have someone who understands our currency requirements so well and who will always provide us with sound advice on the options available to us. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Michael to anyone requiring foreign currency services.
Ben Nickell, MD
Our Funeral supply’s business was established over 70 years ago and in its third generation of ownership. In maintaining our competitiveness we have increasingly procured products and raw materials from the Far East. I established a FX trading relationship with Michael Vaughan over 10 years ago and the service and advice he provides is invaluable in facilitating our trade decision making. Michael is professional, knowledgeable, reliable and most importantly has consistently provided us with market beating rates. I have a great deal of trust in Michaels integrity and would have no hesitation in recommending him for any business or individual with FX requirements.

Leslie R Tipping Limited
I’ve worked with Michael for over 10 years and have always found him to informative, knowledgable, efficient and almost most importantly available!
FX is a volatile arena where time literally is money and in the fast moving world of Film/TV production where we’re buying multiple currencies across numerous locations, often at very short notice, it calls for calm heads and experienced minds, so I’ve very much come to rely on Michael and Alpine FX’s established expertise.
