International trade, and the financial transactions that go with it, requires specialist brokerage services that make the process straightforward and secure, and get the best possible deal in a world of fluctuating exchange rates.
David and Charlotte Worthington set up Optimal Currency in 2019 in order to take a step back from what they saw as large financial operations that simply didn’t have the interests of the customers at heart.
Now, with an account manager that is on hand throughout the process from start to finish, clients, both business and personal, can access expert guidance and service from a foreign exchange specialist that understands the client’s needs and has a constant eye on the market to lock in the best deals possible.
Senior Currency Broker, David Bayliss, explained: “Because we only deal in foreign currency exchange and buy and sell large amounts of currency on a daily basis, we can achieve better rates of exchange for the customer.
“Whether we are working with an individual buying a property abroad, or a business client importing and exporting anywhere in the world, our approach is the same. The focus is on the client and they have direct access to their account manager whenever they need them.
“Foreign currency and exchange rates aren’t always immediately familiar to people and they need to know they can put their trust in the professionals for their own peace of mind.”
With the support of Optimal Currency, clients can understand the specific currency risks and choose the products that best fit their business activity, helping to improve cash flow, increase efficiency and simplify the process of international payments. Optimal Currency combines the latest technology with in-depth knowledge and world-class customer service to make the process as easy as possible.
- Personal support – after a full review of a business’s needs, Optimal Currency make clear, concise recommendations, all with no obligation.
- Beneficial exchange rates – transparent rates with no added fees at a fraction of the cost of going through the bank and with the option of locking in rates for up to two years with forward contracts.
- Simple, no fee payments – there will be no charge for transfers and with access to SEPA, SEPA Instant, Fast Pay and CHAPS, money will be transferred as quickly as possible.
David Bayliss added: “Where appropriate, we can offer forward contracts which lock in an exchange rate for anything up to two years. This allows businesses to plan and budget, knowing exactly what rate they are dealing with. Any effect of fluctuating rates in that time will not affect their bottom line.
“Where we’re looking at a shorter term, someone who has an invoice that needs to be paid in the next month, for instance, we can keep an eye on the markets and choose the right time to pay, gaining maximum benefit from the exchange rate at any particular time.”
