In 1997, GraceKennedy Money Services (GKMS), added its Bureaux de Change (Cambio) operation called FX Trader to its suite of services. Shortly thereafter, this service was extended to Trinidad and Tobago. GKMS started to take advantage of the opportunity the remittance business presented for foreign currency conversions.

Today, FX Trader has become the leading cambio provider of foreign exchange services in Jamaica, and is gaining a foothold in Trinidad.
