About Bidvest Bank

From the birth of the Bidvest Group Limited our business model was simple – create finance solution to fit the needs of our clients and deliver the highest standard of service available.

Our foreign exchange

For many years trading and dealing in foreign exchange is what we have been known for and it is a reputation we are proud to have. In our expansion to become the premier stop for all foreign exchange dealings, we absorbed Rennies Travel bank and have been growing our presence in the foreign exchange market. However, as times have changed we have evolved and are now a complete personal financing option. That is correct, we are now dealing in all branches of finance time.
