Project information

Travel Money Club is the brainchild of our Chairman, Don Clark, former founder and CEO of Torquil Clark Plc, a hugely successful wealth management business. Don simplified financial products, such as PEPs, ISAs, pensions and other investments. He became a prominent financial commentator, who campaigned with government and media against fat commissions and opaque charges on financial products, and was instrumental in bringing about the demise of those commissions and charges. Frustrated by poor value, plus the time and effort involved in organising currency for his own overseas trips, he wondered whether there could be a better way of doing things. And so, Travel Money Club was born. As founder of Torquil Clark Plc, Don refunded over £21 million in commissions and charges to clients. Travel Money Club brings the same unique ethos to the world of travel money.
