FairFX acquired CardOne in January for £15mln to use its infrastructure and technical capability to speed up its own roll-out of a small business banking product.

International payments and travel currency provider City Forex, acquired for £6mln, followed in February and was expected to be immediately earnings enhancing as the firm completed the migration of its international payments business to the platform ten weeks after the acquisition.
