Our Group History
We started in the Kingdom of Bahrain in 1917, trading in gold bullion and continually growing our services when in the 1970’s we entered the remittance market, giving the fast growing expat community the opportunity to send their hard earned money home. We are licensed by the Central Bank of Bahrain and now specialise in global money transfers, foreign exchange and wholesale currency services.
In January 2009, BFC Forex became part of BFC Group Holdings W.L.L, after the Islamic Financial Services Group – Bank Alkhair B.S.C © successfully acquired a controlling stake in Bahrain Exchange Company (BEC) in Kuwait, Bahrain Financing Company (BFC) in Bahrain, and BFC Bank Limited in the United Kingdom.
Since then, due to great success, BFC Group has grown its retail operations even further, opening up BFC Forex & Financial Services PVT Ltd (BFC Forex) in India.
In 2018, BFC Group launched BFC Payments, licensed by the Central Bank of Bahrain (CBB) as an Ancillary Service Provider with permitted activities of Card Processing and Payment Service Provider.
In 2022, BFC Group successfully completed the sale of its UK Subsidiary, BFC Bank.
