Unlock powerful new efficiencies, whilst improving the visibility and control you have over your payment runs.

With significant ongoing investment in technology and dedicated global payments expertise, we help finance teams significantly reduce the time and cost of processing payments, whilst enhancing the level of control and visibility they have throughout the process. Our payments business has been built specifically to support companies with large volumes of payments and we work with clients across a range of industries – from leading global payroll providers, to some of the world’s largest media companies.

By combining cutting-edge technology with a global banking network built up over two decades, we provide our clients with the scale and security of an established global player, alongside the innovation and agility of a disruptive fintech. It’s the best of both worlds!

Numbers that speak volumes… 


We work with a select group of payments clients, less than 100 at present, where we know we can add the most value to their business.

We currently process up to 20,000 payments per day across a range of sectors including: goods, royalties, payroll and investments.


With a client to employee ratio of 4:1, we ensure our clients receive the personal attention their businesses deserve.


Our clients benefit from a cutting-edge platform that is always improving, with over 1,000 platform enhancements and updates in the last year alone.

Transacting over £20bn annually ensures we can achieve the sharpest pricing for our clients and have the scale to support their businesses.


Listed on the London Stock Exchange with a market capitalisation in excess of £800m, we provide a track record that can be trusted.

Both David
and Goliath.

Whilst new fintechs offer attractive levels of innovation, many lack a track record that businesses can trust. And whilst more established providers offer strong track records, legacy systems mean their solutions struggle to keep up with the pace of innovation.

This is where Alpha differs. Our commitment to innovation and track record as an AIM 100 company ensure you’ll benefit from a cutting-edge platform, complete peace of mind, and a truly global banking network. It’s the best of both worlds.

Both human
and digital.

In a drive to increase volume whilst reducing costs, many payment providers have replaced human involvement with self-service offerings. Whilst this may work for consumers and small businesses, for larger companies it can mean significant friction remains that could in fact be removed.

At Alpha, a seamless online experience is also supported by an experienced and proactive team of payments experts – people who understand payment processing and global banking inside-out. This enables us to carry out tasks for you that can’t be done with technology alone, and also means you’ll always have someone proactive and knowledgeable on hand to help whenever you need them.

Mass payments,
but not mass market.

We can’t be all things to all people, nor should we try. Our payments offering has grown quickly by being purpose-built to meet the needs of businesses dealing with high levels of volume and complexity in their payment runs. Being highly specialised allows us to make a bigger difference to those we do work with, but also means we’re not right for everyone.

If you are a business processing large volumes of payments that is struggling with inefficiencies, lack of visibility or reliability, and would like to see if we could help, please submit your details, and a member of our team will be in touch.
