Understand How to Find the Best Exchange Rate
Pound Sterling is used to benchmark the exchange rate market. Live’s custom currency rate comparison tool, includes built-in algorithms for locating the best market rates.
Banks and financial institutions buy and sell currency from each other – these sizeable institutions are ‘the market’ and the rate they transact at is the ‘market rate’. The spread, which is essentially the difference between the buy and sell price, is the difference between how much a currency is purchased and sold.
When banks sell currency to retail customers, the spread widens significantly, and the profit on the transaction grows significantly.
As a result, when we focus on the transfer fee when sending money abroad, we frequently overlook the most significant cost: the exchange rate spread.
Foreign exchange providers have essentially recognized this and have entered the market to transfer money at tighter spreads, potentially saving their clients significant sums of money simply by providing better exchange rates.
For example, transferring £100,000 into euros is expected to result in a rate of between €112,480 and €113,296 with the UK’s leading high street banks. However, FCA-approved providers will offer a rate that ranges between €115,510 and €115,740 (based on rates as of 05/07/21).
Taking the time to work with an FCA-regulated currency provider could result in the delivery of an additional €2444 to €3030.
Everything revolves around safety
Pound Sterling Live only works with FCA-approved foreign exchange payment companies. This is important: FCA regulations and oversight require the money they transfer on your behalf to be protected through a process known as ‘safeguarding’. To be safe, the payments company must keep your money separate from their own in a top-tier bank. As a result, if the provider is under pressure, your money should be safe.
