ICE Finance was founded after a group of investment bank advisers who had all specialised in the expat market for France got together and decided to form a financial services hub for the overseas client.
ICE Finance work in partnership with Foreign Currency Direct to ensure their clients also benefit from the competitive foreign exchange rates and an award-winning personal service. Foreign Currency Direct have nearly two decades experience helping people through the process of exchanging and transferring funds overseas to finance foreign property purchases. We have a range of contracts available that can be tailored to suit your specific circumstances.
We offer competitive currency exchange rates that can save you money compared to the high street banks.
Timing is crucial, especially when large amounts of money are involved. We keep you informed about market events so that you can make an informed decision about when to trade. A small difference in the exchange rate can make a huge difference in your pocket.
Every time you call us you talk to your own Account Manager – someone who knows you, understands your needs and situation.
Whether you are making small payments or transferring lump sums, your Account Manager will be on hand to assist you throughout the international money transfer process. They will discuss the options available in plain English and help you to make an informed decision about when to trade.
As well as offering competitive exchange rates, we’re totally transparent about our transfer fees and will never charge you for something that isn’t agreed on the phone.
The security of your money is something we take seriously. We want to ensure that you’re comfortable with how we handle your funds and the safeguarding processes we use during any currency exchange, large or small.
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.
Entrusting your money to a company you don’t know could be a cause for concern. To offer some reassurance and an insight into what our clients think of us we use feefo, an independent feedback service.
feefo displays only genuine client feedback, so what you see is our clients’ true opinions. We have also been awarded the Gold Trusted Service Award from feefo for 3 years in a row.
Very efficient and responsive. We had great service from Joe Wright who helped us (patiently and with humour) through our currency purchase and was then able to guide us through the process of sending money to France for our property purchase.
Very efficient service. I’ve never used a service like this before & was purchasing a house in France. It was all explained very well & I was kept informed all along the process. Putting a deposit down to pre-book the rate also saved us a fortune.
I’ve used FCD for the last 5 years to finance our holiday cottage in France. The staff are always polite and helpful, and make the transfer process very straightforward and easy. Thoroughly recommended.
