1st Contact Forex beats the banks, every time

by Gemma Blommaert | Oct 21, 2015
  • With 1st Contact Forex, you can transfer your money all over the globe for far less than if you used a traditional bank. We've decided to explain exactly why we beat banks, every time.

    The problem with banks

    Money transfer services offered by the banks are time-consuming and expensive. Banks charge a premium for international transfers because they are not a key service and require more work than domestic payments.

    The rates offered by banks are “interbank rates”. These are the rates at which the banks trade and are not offered to individual clients. On top of this, banks may not be able to give your transfer the individual attention it needs in between the hundreds of other services they perform on a daily basis.

    Our solution

    We don’t hide any of our fees and, unlike the banks, we pay the receiving fee on all transfers to our primary destinations. In addition to this, we monitor the market on your behalf and pass the savings on to you. With 1st Contact Forex you can always be sure that the rate you see is the rate you get.

    As a dedicated international money transfer agent, we provide our clients with an easy to use online portal which allows them to transfer money at the touch of a button. We also provide a highly personalised service; our consultants are only a phone call away. We are always happy help you get the most out of your international money transfer.
