Ebury becomes Official FX Transfer Partner of Scotland’s Rangers FC

Rick Steves

“Today marks a notable milestone in Ebury’s expansion into Scotland as we proudly announce our role as the official FX transfer partner of Rangers FC. Partnering with Rangers is a testament to our commitment to the local community.”

Ebury has announced a sponsorship deal with Rangers Football Club establishing the payments provider as the club’s Official FX Transfer Partner. This team-up is set to continue until the end of the 2025/26 season, adding Rangers to Ebury’s expanding Sports portfolio.

Ebury offers a comprehensive range of services, including international payments and collections, foreign exchange in more than 130 currencies, cash management, business lending, risk management, and API integrations.

This partnership brings benefits to both parties, with Ebury providing extensive solutions to streamline Rangers’ global finance operations while enhancing its brand value next to football fans.

The deal with Rangers FC is not Ebury’s first sports sponsorship venture. Last year, the firm announced a partnership with Fulham FC.

“We’re not just sponsors, we’re fans”

Karim Virani, Chief commercial officer at Rangers Football Club, commented: “Ebury is a hugely innovative and rapidly growing global financial services firm which we are extremely proud to partner with. We have incredible support from all of our fantastic partners and being able to add another successful global business such as Ebury to our portfolio is a fantastic milestone and further validation of the value Rangers Football Club can deliver to businesses around the world. Our plans working alongside them as a club, but also to support the local business network in Scotland, are extremely exciting and we’re very much looking forward to bringing this partnership to life.”

Phil Monkhouse, Ebury UK country manager, added: “Today marks a notable milestone in Ebury’s expansion into Scotland as we proudly announce our role as the official FX transfer partner of Rangers FC. Partnering with Rangers is a testament to our commitment to the local community. Rangers’ sense of tradition, competitive spirit, and incredible fan base is why we’re not just sponsors; we’re fans, dedicated to the development and success of Scottish businesses.”

Ebury’s planned IPO, African expansion, and enhancements

The company is preparing for an initial public offering (IPO) anticipated to occur as early as 2025. To facilitate this, Ebury has engaged the services of investment bank Perella Weinberg Partners. The planned IPO, potentially on the London Stock Exchange, reflects Ebury’s substantial growth, particularly since majority ownership by Santander has propelled its valuation and market presence.

Ebury has marked a significant milestone in its global expansion strategy by acquiring Prime Financial Markets, a financial services firm based in Johannesburg. This acquisition represents Ebury’s first foray into the African market. Prime Financial Markets is recognized for its expertise in treasury and financial market advice, aligning well with Ebury’s offerings. The move into Africa is part of Ebury’s broader strategy to grow internationally and enhance its platform for comprehensive global financial services.

Ebury has also focused on enhancing its internal operational excellence. The company has chosen Galvanize, a leading software provider in governance, risk, and compliance, to streamline and improve its enterprise risk and control management. This initiative aims to increase efficiency, visibility, and data-driven decision-making across the organization.
