Halo Financial supports both spot and forward transactions. A small deposit may be required for forward transactions. Payments can be made via bank transfer only.
Halo Financial supports both business and personal users. The service is recommended for large transactions, as transfers above £5,000 are free of cost (no transfer fee is charged).
The registration process for Halo Financial can be completed in minutes for individuals, while it may take a bit longer for businesses. This is due to additional verification involved. However, even business accounts are activated within the same working day.
