Whether you’re buying or selling a home or transferring money and savings internationally, you don’t have to delay. Senior Currency Trader George Finch explains the crucial help Smart Currency can provide you with.

As summer approaches and the British weather remains unreliable, more and more Brits begin to think about their plans to buy property outside of the UK. That’s why we wanted to make sure you understand all the services we, at Smart, can offer you during this time.

So, what can we do to help our clients at this time?

Firstly, of course, we are open and at the end of the telephone, on the usual number, 020 7898 0541. Yes, you can talk to us personally, not just online.

We’re open a little earlier too, 8:30am to 6pm, to be able to help more clients.

For property buyers

While it’s been a steady month for the pound, I urge you not to take for granted that the pound’s success will hold. The “downside risk” of fluctuating currencies is significant. This could be a good time to lock in the rate with a forward contract. It allows you to lock in a preferred rate for up to 12 months, which protects you from the risk of your pound falling. Look out for our quarterly forecast for guidance on where the pound and euro could be by summer and beyond.

If you’re just starting out on your property buying journey, speaking to Smart is essential for setting a budget. Our traders are currency specialists and can advise you of the current market and share with you how far your pound can go, and when will be the best time for you to act. Not a Smart customer yet?

We can help overseas homeowners with managing the ongoing cost of their properties abroad. We offer a range of regular and automated payments that save you time and money. Examples of these types of payments may include, international school fees, overseas property maintenance, management company fees and running fees for your holiday home.

Keeping you informed

We produce high-quality content on a regular basis to help anyone involved in foreign transfers. We provide guidance and expertise to not only overseas buyers, but individuals with a dream to buy abroad, businesses with foreign exchange needs and anyone interested in the currency markets. As a customer of Smart Currency Exchange, you have the option of receiving our weekly and daily currency notes for regular updates on the movements of key currencies that may influence how much your pound is worth.
