Thinking of moving to the UK, or repatriating from abroad, or are you investing in the UK and need to transfer money? Getting a competitive Pound Sterling exchange rate makes an enormous difference when you are sending regular amounts or transferring large sums. Very simply, we can get you a competitive exchange rate when you are sending money to the UK.
Our simple process makes sending money quick, simple and stress-free. Established in 2000, we have been helping people transfer money all over the world for many years and our experienced team of currency specialists are here to answer all your questions in plain English.
Our service is designed to take the stress, hassle and unnecessary costs out of overseas money transfers.
Clients looking to make an international money transfer can save money compared to the high street banks by using our service. In fact, our competitive exchange rates are something we are very proud of.
As well as getting competitive exchange rates, you’ll save by not paying any hidden fees. We make our money on the margins at which we buy and sell the currency.
We will only make a small additional charge of £15 if your transaction is under £50,000.
The security of your money is something we take seriously. We’re authorised as an e-money institution by the Financial Conduct Authority, which means we’re required to safeguard your money by keeping it in segregated accounts. We hold these with trusted mainstream banks, and because we’re an authorised e-money institution, you can keep your currency with us until you need to make a payment.
Every time you call us you will speak to your own Account Manager – someone who knows your situation and is fully aware of what you are trying to achieve.
The transfer of your money will be handled by your dedicated Account Manager, who will be on hand to provide assistance and answer any questions you may have.
The service was effortless to use and I was kept up to date all the way through the process with courtesy calls and advice from the same contact in the selling of my home abroad and returning the funds back to the UK. I would highly recommend this service to friends and colleagues in the future.
We just sold our house in Spain and used Foreign Currency Direct to change Euros to Sterling. They were extremely good and it was remarkably quick and easy. I would definitely recommend them.
I had the money from the sale of our villa in Spain transferred to my bank account in the UK. My contact was James and they handled every aspect of the transfer quickly and efficiently and after agreeing the rate the money was in my uk bank account the same day.
I used them to repatriate the proceeds of the sale of my house in France including a forward contract to protect my exchange rate. The service was exemplary and even included a French speaker in their office smoothing things with the Notaire who had no understanding how a currency broker worked. Their rates are very competitive and the broker interaction efficient, personal and reassuring.
