Currency Exchange and the benefits of using a specialist provider

By Spectrum IFA
This article is published on: 2nd February 2021

Relying on a bank to transfer currency is an expensive option. Currency transfer specialists provide competitive terms, secure, swift transactions and a range of other benefits including regular payments, forward contracts and rate tracking alerts.

At The Spectrum IFA Group we work with Smart Currency Exchange to deliver the best possible rates, service and support for our clients.

Whilst nobody can predict exchange rate direction, the relative strength (or weakness) of the euro is relevant for most of us. I attached a weblink to Smart’s 2021 quarterly currencies forecast.

Smart Currency Exchange
Quarterly Forecast 2021

A historic Presidential election, Brexit deal and global pandemic sent currencies in directions that no one could have predicted in 2020.

Does that mean matters will settle down in 2021? We wouldn’t suggest you bet your transfers, your property budget and your future plans on that!

Fresh uncertainties for the year ahead bring new challenges for economies – and currencies – too. So, predicting the pound’s movements accurately can be a near-impossible task – even for the major banks.

I invite you to read this quarter’s currency forecasts, but with a strong suggestion that you do not base any decisions on them. Predictions for GBP/EUR range between 1.06 and 1.28 over the next 12 months!
