A Message From Our New Partner Oku Markets

Harry Mills

Hello, I'm Harry the Founder of Oku Markets and client at Gravitate Accounting.

It was about this time last year when Sam and I got chatting via LinkedIn (of course) about Oku potentially becoming a Gravitate client: “Would also be nice to work with a fellow Wednesdayite”, were my exact words.

The reason our company moved across to Gravitate was for the advisory work, the tax planning sessions, and having a team of great people we can trust and want to work closely with.

You can only tell so much from social media and from websites, so it wasn’t until after a few months and a couple of face-to-face meetings that I really saw and felt the Gravitate difference.

As we got to know each other better, it became clear that Gravitate work with SMEs that trade internationally and have challenges with navigating currency markets – precisely our area of expertise, and an gap that Gravitate was keen to plug.

The currency market is synonymous with opaque pricing and dishonest behaviour. If you’ve ever worked with a Bank, you’ll know they’re expensive, and if you’ve ever worked with a Broker, you’ll know exactly what they’re like!

Oku Markets is a specialist currency management firm providing solutions for businesses and private clients, but we're not just another FX company...

I founded Oku Markets in 2021 after more than 10 years in The City, with a mission to do things differently, to always act in our clients’ best interests, and to lead the change in currency management. We’re proud to live our values of integrity, professionalism, and transparency – in everything we do –, and to stand apart from our competition in the market.

Our core services including everything from payments and transfers, to currency accounts, conversions and trading, business currency hedging solutions, and our unique and highly consultative approach to business risk management.

If you move money overseas, trade internationally, operate in non-GBP currencies, or are planning an overseas asset purchase or sale, we can help you!

An Offer to Gravitate Clients

We’re offering a free, comprehensive currency audit to any business working with Gravitate. Learn more and submit your enquiry at:

And for your personal FX needs, we’re offering 10% better exchange rates, compared to our standard, bank-beating rates – and free transfers! So, if you’re buying that house in Spain, speak to us!

If you’d like to get in touch, please do so. You can write to me at or give me a call on 07981 299 885 or 0203 838 0250.

Best wishes,


Harry Mills
