YBEX is a Hong Kong-based financial technology company and our platform is a marketplace for foreign exchange (“FX”) services. We help individuals and businesses compare and lock-in exchange rates with the most suitable money service providers for their money exchange, remittance and cross border payment needs.

Our two-sided platform marries the latest mobile, web and cloud-based technology with bleeding-edge ultra-high frequency trading infrastructure and bank-grade security. For users of FX services, our mobile app YBPay brings transparency and convenience; for money service providers, our web portal YBPro helps increase revenue, streamline operation and manage AML risks.

Our aim is to revolutionise the whole ecosystem - whether it is for travellers, international students, oversea foreign workers and multinational corporations on the user side, or for local money exchange shops, international remittance companies and global banks on the service provider side, YBEX improves the experience for everyone.

We strive to achieve fluid money movement globally.
