Currency brokers are specialists at buying & selling currencies and focus on currencies-only, unlike high street banks who provide a range of other services. When transferring money internationally, whether for business or individual purposes, specialist currency brokers are fast becoming the preferred choice. With no fees, excellent exchange rates and fast transfer times, currency brokers provide a much better deal than using a bank.
UKForex is one of the UK's leading currency brokers, helping thousands of individuals and businesses with their international money transfers.
With plenty of currency brokers out there, choosing the right one requires plenty of research into company websites and profiles. Here are five considerations when choosing a currency broker:
Firstly, find out whether the broker is compliant with local regulation - for instance, in the UK the broker should be regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). This provides extra security by ensuring that the company safeguards client funds and maintains a certain level of capital funds. A broker that is a member of a regulatory body will state this on its website. You should only open an account with a firm that is fully regulated. Click here for more information.
Currency brokers offer far better exchange rates and lower fees than any bank, however it is important to compare the exchange rates/ fees between the different currency brokers. The currency market is extremely competitive and some firms quote ‘interbank’ exchange rates to get your attention and then add additional fees/ increase margins. Don't be fooled - get a quote upfront and confirm if there are any fees attached before proceeding.
At UKForex, there are no fees if your transfer is greater than £3,000. So with low (or no) fees and a 3-4% saving on the exchange rate compared to a bank, you could potentially save thousands of pounds when transferring big amounts.
You may also want to consider how quickly a broker can transfer your money. Most currency exchange firms can deliver the funds to an international bank account within 1-2 days while others may take longer. This sometimes depends on which country you’re sending money to, but either way it’s worth looking in to if you’re in a hurry.
Good brokers offer 24/7 support for their customers. Foreign exchange markets are open 24 hours a day, therefore a broker's customer support should also be available to answer all your questions at any time during the week. In this respect, having access to your own dedicated FX dealer who can help manage the various risks involved with foreign exchange is key, so ensure that the FX firm has good 24/7 customer service so you can make a sound and quick deal, whenever you’re ready to.
Lastly, consider the dealing system (both desktop and mobile) that a company offers. Is it simple and quick to make an international money transfer or slow and confusing? Sending money abroad does not need to be difficult so ensure your broker has up-to-date technology which allows you to conduct a transfer quickly and without too much hassle.
