Currencies – A Basic Guide


Why use a Foreign Exchange Specialist         

Most people buying a property in Spain will need to transfer a substantial amount of money to a Spanish bank account to complete the purchase. In the past your only option was to arrange this through your own UK bank. Bearing in mind that clearing banks make large profits from their foreign exchange business alone, do you think you always get the best rate? Specialists in Foreign Currency will offer competitive rates of exchange unrivalled by clearing banks, ultimately saving you money.


How is this possible

They contact the Foreign Exchange market night and day and quote an up to the second exchange rate. Many institutions quote the rate for the day or even the week. This means that they ultimately have to quote a poor rate to you to ensure that they do not fall far off negative market fluctuations.
