How Does The Currency Exchange Process Work?

An FX specialist or currency broker works in a similar fashion to your bank or money exchange service on the high street, apart from their exchange rates are significantly better.

The process varies depending on which service you need, but it generally involves creating an account with a broker, placing an order with the broker for the amount of currency you require and specifying the recipient details.

You will then send funds to your broker’s segregated client account and the transaction will be carried out.

We would always suggest you use an FCA regulated currency broker or foreign exchange specialist as this provides you with additional safeguards for your funds, including that your money is kept in a segrated account in the event that a broker went bankrupt whilst making an exhcange on your behalf.
