Top tips for avoiding property related currency exchange losses

By April 14, 2014No Comments

Anyone making currency transfers can be at the mercy of the latest currency fluctuation, which can leave you with a big shortfall regarding the amount of currency you may have expected to receive. This is particularly the case with big overseas transactions such as buying a property abroad, although the same applies to smaller regular transactions also.

Here are 5 tips to help you avoid losses:

1. Don’t use a bank
2. Discuss your currency needs well in advance of any transfer
3. Use a forward contract to fix the price of your currency exchange
4. Use a company where their traders are not paid on commission
5. Use a company where their currency specialists will provide expert knowledge regarding currency markets

These simple tips can make a massive difference to any currency exchange you are considering making.  Call Smart Currency today on +44 020 7898 0541 to find out more and how we can help you. Smart Currency will also send you a copy of their guide “A currency specialist’s guide to buying overseas property” explaining these tips above in detail.
