Navigating the currency markets for the first time can be daunting. If you’re just used to grabbing a few euros at the airport, transferring a large sum to buy a property abroad may make you pause for thought.
And so it should: currencies fluctuate by the second, potentially changing the price of the home you have set your heart on. If you are moving abroad but receiving an income from the pound or other currency, your income could be changing by the minute. Sometimes, but rarely, these movements can be anticipated. Others, more than people realise, come completely out of the blue.
Having been in the money transfer business so many years, we’ve seen every possible problem and scenario first-hand. We know how the markets move and the factors that cause exchange rates to fluctuate. We’ve channelled our years of experience into every service we offer so that we can help you avoid risk and stress every time you transfer.

Moving abroad's your chance to enjoy the life you've always dreamed of, in your perfect home...
Well, this is exciting! In the three and a half years since the Referendum you might have got used to not much happening. Suddenly we have an election coming on 12th December, from which we could go in all sorts of directions. For anyone planning to move abroad, buy a property abroad or do business abroad the result could have profound implications.
Where will the pound be by Christmas? While no-one can predict with any certainty how any currency pair will trade in the future – not without a crystal ball – that doesn’t stop the major banks from having a go. There is something to be said for the wisdom of crowds, too, and this takes an average of those forecasts. We also look at the economic and political factors to look out for in the UK, Europe and US over the next three months.
Even so, at Smart we strongly recommend a strategy of focusing on your own plans, setting out your required budget and then fixing your rate with a forward contract.
The key to successful transfers comes from being well-informed. That is why we prioritise knowledge and expertise, keeping our clients up to date on the matters likely to affect currencies. We provide access to live rates on our website, our app and via daily emails, so you can monitor how the markets are moving (and act) wherever you are.
We have a team of expert writers who provide regular updates on political, economic and cultural news that might affect your plans. We produce a number of free guides that walk you through every aspect of a property purchase or international transfer.
Unless you take steps to protect yourself, you’ll never know what rate you will trade at until the time comes to transfer. You could be lucky and have these fluctuations work in your favour. Or, the rates might change by as little as one percent and that dream property could instantly shoot thousands of pounds out of budget.
Smart Currency Exchange is here to help you take control and to manage every transfer sensibly and successfully. We’ve been in operation for more than a decade. In that time we’ve helped people to transfer more than £5 billion around the world.
