We think it's time to come clean. Girobank has been transferring large sums of money half-way round the world for years.
It's hardly a risky business. Our centralised international division, with its unique links to the entire overseas Giro network, allows business to be conducted at maximum speed and with the minimum of bureaucracy.
And even if your transaction should prove difficult (as it might in Nicaragua for example) we can provide documentary collections, letters of credit, bonds and guarantees.
All in all, Girobank adds up to less hassle and more choice for the businessman or woman. A call to the number below will reveal the full story. Frankly, we think the whole world should know.
