Money Transfer Made Easy

Paris rooftops with Eiffel Tower

If you’re buying a holiday home or investment property overseas, or just need to transfer from one currency to another to repay your mortgage or cover your living expenses, the cost of making that trade can be greatly reduced by working with currency specialists instead of relying on your bank to make the transfer. At the Adrian Leeds Group, we’ve got you covered.

Making the Most of Fluctuating Exchange Rates

The euro exchange rate is constantly fluctuating, so trading at the right moment will mean your money goes a lot further. The Adrian Leeds Group works together with several currency exchange specialists to ensure that you make the most of your American, Canadian, or Australian dollars (or any other currency) when buying a property in France.

How much does the rate of exchange matter? Here’s a scenario using real exchange rates (EU/USD): A property listed at €250,000 would cost $266,450 at an exchange rate of €1/$1.0658. But it would cost $284,925 at a rate of €1/$1.1397. That small move, just a few weeks apart, could cost you nearly $18,500—money that could otherwise go toward renovations, furnishings, or even just in-pocket savings. Planning and fixing an exchange rate at the right time can save you a lot of money.

Getting More For Your Money

If you leave payments until the last minute, you will have to accept the rate that the markets offer at the time of transfer. Making transfers with companies specializing in currency exchange is faster, more convenient, and more cost-effective than using your bank. Whether you’re making regular transfers, or need to make a one-off payment, these services don’t charge a commission—and guarantee no receiving bank charges. They also offer free information and guidance on the currency markets, helping you decide on the best time to buy.

Flexible Service To Lock in More Favorable Rates

Currency exchange specialists can also offer what’s called a “forward contract,” which allows you to fix an exchange rate at which you can buy/sell currency for delivery at a later date (up to two years ahead). Forward contracts protect against adverse currency movements and can be used to lock in favorable exchange rates.

SPECIAL NOTE: America is making it difficult to move money from one currency to another for foreign or “off-shore” traders. Thanks to strict U.S. regulations, currency exchange specialists who are based outside the U.S. are forced to acquire licenses on a state-by-state basis in order to service U.S. clients. Check with our currency specialists to ensure they can work with your state.
