How you can save money when sending your funds oversees

  1. 1. How You Can Save Money When Sending Your Funds Oversees
  2. 2. Would you like to send money to another country?This sort of transaction is more complicated than you probably think. In addition to bank fees and commission, an international money transfer entails hefty middlemen fees. Most middlemen make their money from the volatile foreign currency exchange rate.Another hidden fee is charged by the receiving banks in the foreign countries. If you are not aware of all these charges you may get surprised at how much your funds have shrunk.
  3. 3. As hinted above, banks are one means of sending funds abroad.They send large and small amounts. Prior to using your local bank, inspect their current exchange rate and fixed fees.Then calculate the total amount of foreign currency your local currency can buy.Your bank is not the only money transfer option on hand.
  4. 4. There are internet-based foreign exchange brokers (deal with huge transactions) and money transfer firms too. But how can you compare deals from banks, money transfer firms and foreign exchange brokers?You can use a comparison site that uses a smart calculation tool to generate the lowest and fairest exchange rate.
  5. 5. How does a comparison site work? It works in an idiot-proof manner that is outlined as shown below.  Select your local currency from a drop-down list.  Select the currency to which you intend to send funds from another drop down list.  Choose the method of transfer among cash exchange, currency transfer and travel card.  Enter the amount and press compare.
  6. 6. The comparison site will generate data consisting of different banks and other financial organizations.The result will compare and contrast listed organizations in terms of rate, fee, buys, and margin. It will also give you more information on each international money transfer bank or service provider and tell you whether registration is needed.There may be a review of each service provider in the generated result.
  7. 7. As a customer you should read the self-explanatory end result and compare different quotes. If listed banks are too expensive, regardless of the size of the fund you want to transmit, choose either a money transfer firm or a foreign exchange broker.To be honest you cannot only focus on the cheapest offer.
  8. 8. The security of the money you want to send oversees also matters. If you are going to choose a FX exchange broker, ensure that they are not only registered but also authorised by a certain organisation. In the UK, FX exchange brokers are regulated by the FCA (Finance Conduct Authority).
