Smart Currency Exchange offers various options to enable you to save money and reduce
the risk of losses. Briefly, these options are:
1: Buy a lump sum of currency needed now or soon. Spot Contract
If you're buying a property overseas soon or need to make a lump sum payment such
as a deposit, pay for solicitor fees, or send money back to the UK (repatriation)
this is a good option to consider. This option is called a 'Spot Contract' and allow
you to purchase and transfer money to your overseas bank or financial institution
today (or within days). Smart Currency can offer 'Spot Contracts,' at better-than-bank
rates. Get more information on Spot Contracts
2: Buy currency now at a fixed rate and pay for it later. Forward Contract
This option is fantastic for property buyers that have staged payments (or are paying
for a new build in instalments) and want to ensure against an unexpected changes
(in either direction) in the price of your currency. This is especially handy if
you need to work to a budget. The price that you were quoted for your property on
a particular day will certainly be different a few months (and even days) later.
The last thing that you want to do is to pay £10,000 extra pounds because
you didn't secure a rate! These contracts are called 'Forwards' as they allow you
set a rate forward into the future.

3: Order currency when it hits a rate that you designate. Order to Call
This option is called a 'Order to Call' and is for people that have no specific
time restraints or requirements. It allows you to designate a rate that you're willing
to wait for and when the currency hits your preferential amount, your Smart Trader
will call you to find out if you'd like to buy the currency. This allows you to
save money and use fluctuations to your advantage.
