When you need help with a large sum of money, and to you every amount is important, passing it off to a stranger to manage isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do. The team at GCI knows this. As such, we have gone to exceptional levels of measures of quality control to ensure all of our business activities are in compliance with all federal and provincial legislation and regulations.

In addition to a number of security measures we provide, the experts at GCI take a proactive mindset when it comes to understanding The Proceeds of Crime Act and the Terrorist Financing Act. We are very clear on what our responsibilities are, and we take those very seriously to ensure every single one of our clients experiences a secure and safe transaction…every single time.

When it comes to our records and our responsibilities to federal and provincial legislation, we have maintained our commitment over the last 15 years to comply with all legislative bodies and to offer the government an open book policy. When it comes to you, and your personal information and your most precious assets, GCI specialists offer you the same commitment and compliance with leading privacy legislation to ensure your transactions are seamless, secure, and discreet. Of course in order to maintain our exceptional standards, we may be required to collect information from our clients, but you can rest assured, we take privacy laws very seriously.

No matter which way you look at it, you will never have to worry when funds exchange hands at GCI. Our accountability record speaks for itself, as we maintain our commitment to keep the world’s currencies….in YOUR hands.
