Spot contracts

If you need to make an international payment immediately, or with very little notice, then a spot contract could be perfect for you. We’ll offer you a rate based on the live exchange rate today and make the payment as soon as you’ve sent us the funds. Spot transfers are great if you just need to get it done.

Forward contracts

A forward contract will allow you to fix a rate for up to 3 years. We will offer you a rate now, based on the live market rate, which is a guaranteed rate at which you can transfer time and again for the duration of the contract.

Forward contracts are great for budgeting as you know exactly what rate you’ll get when you need to make a transfer.

Firm orders

If you’re more concerned with the rate at which you make your transfer than when you make your transfer, a firm order could be perfect for you. A firm order allows you to instruct us to execute a transaction on your behalf at a rate of your choosing – you’re basically giving us a watching brief and the power to act at just the right time. The beauty of a firm order is that we can execute your transfer the moment we can secure your currency at the agreed rate – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

So whether it's all going up, down, left or right we'll have you covered.
