If you're buying a house on a different continent, one of the best ways to make sure your money is working harder for you is to get the best rate of exchange on an international money transfer. Even if you've landed a great deal on an Australian property, you will be dealing with large lump sums of money and unfavourable exchange rates can shave off a significant amount of your investment.
To ensure you're always getting the best possible exchange rate on your transfers, open an account with TorFX where you can see all the latest information on the Australian dollar. We offer exchange rates up to five per cent better than the banks, with no commission or charges to worry about - so in a property transaction worth £200,000, you could save as much as £10,000 on the deal.
Once you've started your new life in Australia, you may still need to send funds to and from the UK from time to time, and you will be provided with regular insight and updates into the currency markets so you can continue to make your money work hard.
