Transferring your funds is pretty straightforward. You’ll need to open an account with us. It’s free, and easy to do. Then you just get in touch and let us know what you want to do.
When you’re ready to make a decision, we agree a rate with you and send you a confirmation email.
Then you arrange to transfer funds to us, and we do the exchange at the pre-agreed rate and send the funds on to bank account(s) you’ve nominated.
