If you’ve ever attempted to transfer funds from one account to another overseas, you’ll find that this can be an expensive process if done through a bank. Especially if you’re transferring different currencies.

This method used to be the only way in which you could move accounts from an overseas account to the UK or vice versa. This can be an expensive affair due to banks usually charging for commission and hidden costs.

If you need to send money abroad or receive currency from an overseas bank account, a dedicated foreign exchange broker can manage the entire transaction for you at a fraction of the cost of high street banks.

Benefits to doing this include lowering the charges banks implement for their service, no hidden charges or commission costs & the transfer providers and process are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. All these are met with the guarantee of the currency transferred to your account within 24 hours.
