Personal FX

Moving abroad can be a complicated process, but Pickfords FX strives to make things just that little bit easier by saving you money on your personal foreign currency transfers.

When organising your relocation you may find that you need to send money abroad, to fund the purchase or sale of a property (for example) or to transfer wages, pension payments, international school fees or general living costs. While you can use a bank to make transactions of this sort, the exchange rate they are able to offer is rarely the best available. They may also add on transfer fees and commission costs, so you don’t get the most for your money.

However, specialist foreign exchange providers like Pickfords FX can conduct swift, secure transfers on more than 50 global currencies at a competitive rate of exchange and without you having to pay a penny in additional costs.

Furthermore, Pickfords FX is also able to offer a range of specialist foreign exchange solutions which can be tailored to suit your individual needs. Whether you need to transfer 1,000 or £5,000,000, we can help.

Save Money

The exchange rates clients are able to secure with Pickfords FX often beat those offered by the banks by more than 3%, and as many other foreign exchange providers levy transfer fees of anything from £10-£40 per transaction you’ll start seeing instant savings.

Forward Thinking Solutions

As well as conducting your personal foreign currency transfers expediently and cost-effectively, Pickfords FX can supply in-depth knowledge of currency movements, give you guidance on market trends and provide support when it comes to picking the right time to make a trade.

You can also optimise your transfer by utilising one of a number of specialist foreign currency exchange solutions, such as fixing a favourable rate for up to two years in advance of a trade. By fixing a rate in this manner you can safeguard your transaction from negative shifts in the market and know exactly how much you’re going to get for your money. This service is particularly useful if you’re purchasing a foreign property as there can often be quite a delay between making an offer on a property and exchanging contracts.

Expert Support

Another benefit of registering with Pickfords FX is that you’ll be assigned your own personal Account Manager, a currency expert dedicated to helping you get the most from your foreign currency exchange.

Total Security

Pickfords FX services are provided by TorFX, who operated segregated client accounts with Barclays. They are also authorised by the FCA and hold the highest rating of credit worthiness with Dun and Bradstreet, so you can rest easy in the knowledge that your funds are totally secure.

Regular Overseas Payments

You may find that you have regular overseas payments to manage once you move abroad. In fact, with wages/pension payments to move, mortgage payments to meet or international school fees to pay, you could have more than one transfer to juggle.

With Pickford FX, organising your regular foreign currency transfers couldn’t be simpler. After setting up an account you can arrange for payments from as little as £500 to be made on a monthly or quarterly basis, automatically and on a day of your choosing. The transfer will be conducted at a competitive rate of exchange and without you having to pay any of the commission costs or fees levied by most banks.
