Personal currency transfers are necessary for many reasons. For individuals moving to another country or selling an asset overseas it may mean selling one currency to buy another.
Even for those with some foreign exchange experience, arranging currency transfers with their bank will often be time consuming, expensive, and result in transfers executed at exchange rates that are a considerable distance from where the interbank market is trading. The overall level of service many banks give their personal clients is, in our view, often vastly inadequate, given the transfer values involved. Such bank transactions are often completed at a significant cost to the client.
