Continental Currency Exchange, Ltd. to be acquired by DUCA Credit Union


Toronto, ON (January 18, 2022) – Continental Currency Exchange, Ltd. (CCE) is about to come under the umbrella of DUCA Financial Services Credit Union Ltd. (DUCA), one of Canada’s fastest growing credit unions. As a result of this acquisition, CCE, one of Canada’s largest foreign exchange bureaus, anticipates a profitable collaboration and future growth opportunities.


Acquisition by DUCA will provide CCE with access to exciting new market opportunities. Tom Robertson, CCE’S CEO, states “Under DUCA’s ownership, we foresee strong organic growth as we continue to provide our longstanding individual and corporate clients with low cost, international access to currency through a variety of modern technologies, including online ordering. With over 30 years of continuous operations in Canada, we will continue to drive CCE’S success through our unique combination of industry leading FX products and a customer-first approach to service.”


Doug Conick, DUCA’s President and CEO, cites CCE’S distribution channel and their efficient, effective currency exchange services as key factors in the decision to pursue acquisition: “Incorporating CCE into our credit union will allow us to grow and expand our product and service offerings.”


CCE has 19 branch locations across Ontario and, according to Mr. Robertson, “With CCE’s stellar customer satisfaction record and leadership in providing global foreign exchange, joining the DUCA fold will be a worthy complement to both organizations. It will enhance the DUCA promise to help Personal and Business Members do more, be more, and achieve more with their money, their lives, and their business by integrating our services into the suite of benefits related to everyday banking, lending, and financial counsel that are already valued by DUCA Members.”


It is anticipated the acquisition will finalize on March 31, 2022. CCE will continue to operate under its own name and brand.
