Cornerstone’s story

The Cornerstone of today has been twelve years in the making. We started small, we aimed big and whilst we’re proud of where we are today, we’ve got even more bold developments to come in the near future.

Our company begins 12 years ago

Cornerstone started out life in 2010 as PlutusFX LTD, which would later become FXPress and then Cornerstone Payment Solutions.

Over time the key people in the business believed that there had to be a better, more efficient way to handle financial foreign exchange transactions. They therefore started the process of building in house a new technology platform for foreign exchange payments.
