You can easily register online or alternatively print, sign and return a copy of the trading agreement, by fax or email. One of our team will get in touch to discuss your requirements and provide guidance on the best options available for you.
However you choose to register, it’s straightforward, free and there’s absolutely no obligation for you to trade with us.
There are two ways to buy currency through us; over the phone or via our online trading platform. If you prefer, you can even choose a combination of both.
Absolutely. We operate client transaction accounts, so your funds are kept separate to those of our other clients and separate to our own Global Reach Partners business accounts. Your money simply sits in a dedicated account until we receive instruction from you on where it needs to be transferred to. Only then does it leave the account.
Importantly, our currency exchange activities are focused solely on buying and selling foreign currency on behalf of our customers. You’ll be relieved to hear that we are not involved in speculation on the foreign exchange markets. You can also be reassured that we adhere strictly to independent regulatory standards.
We are regulated by HM Revenue and Customs and registered as a Money Services Business, which makes us subject to UK money laundering regulations and periodic inspections. In addition, all the banks we deal with on your behalf are under Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) jurisdiction for licensing and regulation. We are also supervised by the Financial Conduct Authority under the Payment Services Directive 2009.
For single payments and transfers, we offer competitive exchange rates on amounts of £1,000 or more. However, if you are making regular payments, you can benefit from our services on amounts of as little as £250 a month. Whatever amount of foreign currency you want to buy or sell, please contact us and we’ll let you know if we can help.
Currency exchange rates fluctuate across the world on a continual basis so to benefit from an accurate ‘up-to-the-minute’ rate please call our team for a live quote. Also, depending on your requirements, it might be better to secure a rate of exchange for a future transfer or payment. Simply get in touch and we’ll provide you with the right solution for your individual needs.
We accept payment by bank transfer (Faster Payment, BACS, CHAPS). Please note that we do not accept cash for settlement. Alternatively, you can set up a standing order for your payments. Most clients prefer to set up a transfer from their online bank account.
Registration for our services is free and we do not charge you any commission for your currency exchange.
There is usually a fee if the onward payment or transfer we make on your behalf, needs to be made electronically. This cost varies according to how quickly this needs to be made and where it needs to get to. However, you will always be advised of the relevant amount before you agree to any transaction.
You can take advantage of two transfer options; ‘Standard’ and ‘Priority’. Certain factors may alter the transfer time including different time zones, local banking hours, and international holidays. Your dealer will be able to supply you with more information.
Our approach is very different from that of banks who tend to be reactive and less likely to contact you when a good exchange rate comes up. Their day rates tend not to be an accurate reflection of the actual market whereas, with us, you always get a live, ‘up-to-the-minute’ price.
Even the banks’ tourist rates can be up to 5% different to the actual market rate.
Yes we do. While we are a UK company and use the British Pound as our base currency, we buy and sell a whole range of different foreign currency pairs. This means that as well as exchanging for example US Dollars to British Pounds or British Pounds to Euros, we can exchange Australian Dollars to US Dollars or the Japanese Yen to Euros.
Whatever your foreign currency requirement, just call one of our team and we’ll let you know how we can help.
