Orient Exchange Co. (L.L.C.) established in the year 1923, are the pioneers of the Foreign Exchange business in the UAE. Driven by customers need and market demand, with absence of any banks or financial institution, the operations commenced in the early 20th century under the name and style "M/S Paramanand Jethanand" With licensing of companies introduced and issued by the Dubai Municipality, it was in the year 1963, that our exchange was officially registered as M/s Arabian Trading Agency. But since 1982 all money exchange companies were licensed and regulated by Central Bank of the UAE; our foreign exchange unit was renamed as M/S Arabian Trading Agency Exchange. In the year 1983 U.A.E. introduced agency laws and as per said law an Exchange company could not have the terms Trading and Agency as part of their registered name. Hence our company was renamed as Orient Exchange Co. (OEC) in the year 1986 and converted into a limited liability company in 1994 and currently known as Orient Exchange Co. (L.L.C.).
