Transfers of up to £25,000 can be made on the trading platform or with the assistance of the account manager over the telephone. The trading platform lets clients see live exchange rates, make 24/7 transfers, monitor the status of their payments, and track transfer history. To set up a TorFX trading account, individuals need to provide a government issue ID document and proof of residence. The account activation process is done by entering a 5-digit pin number received over your mobile phone from TorFX.
