Our Story

Olympia Trust Company (OTC) entered the foreign currency exchange space 15 years ago offering clients better service and exchange rates better than the banks.

As a Financial Institution, Olympia saw an opportunity to provide an alternative solution for clients in Western Canada needing currency exchange and global payment support. By focusing on providing personalized, one on one customer service, exceptional exchange rates and providing 100% security on client funds, Olympia has been successful in supporting its more than 10,000 clients with our motto of “With Us It’s Personal”.

Today as many financial institutions seek to automate the client experience, Olympia Currency & Global Payments still strives to build customized currency and global payment solutions for our clients.

Olympia Trust is a non-deposit taking trust corporation formed under Alberta's Loan and Trust Corporations Act. We are bonded and insured and as a regulated trust corporation, complying with FINTRAC’s regulations for Financial Entities. OTC falls under the umbrella of Olympia Financial Group which is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol "OLY".
