WASHINGTON, May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a successful US launch, leading international payments provider World First has today announced that it has opened a new office in California.

The second office follows the expansion of the company's first site in Washington, DC, as the rapidly growing firm continues to recruit more staff and significantly increase its client base.

The new site in Los Angeles will offer residents of the Golden State access to more competitive exchange rates for international money transfers.

Many Americans still use their bank when they need to send money overseas; however, more and more people are discovering there are better alternatives out there – getting your money sent faster and more economically via new specialized payments companies. World First is a market leader in this category.

Christopher Russell, CEO, at World First USA, said: 

"We're delighted to be open for business in America's most populous state, the 9th largest economy in the world.

"World First is changing the way people think about making international payments, providing a better way to transfer money overseas for everyone.

"From our new office in L.A. we will be able to bring our superior pricing and service to another 38 million Americans. It's a hugely exciting time of expansion for the business."
