Halo Financial - Foreign Currency Specialists Services

Halo Financial

Whether you are buying a home overseas, emigrating or importing a high-value capital good such as a car, boat or aircraft you’ll almost certainly be expected to make the transaction in the local currency. This will involve a transfer perhaps from your UK bank into another currency that will need to be transferred to the vendors account overseas. But this unfortunately isn’t always as straightforward as it may seem.

For instance, currencies fluctuate all the time. If you trade when the exchange rates are in your favour, you get better value and receive more currency for your money. But if there’s a downturn in the exchange rate, you won’t get such good value from your trade and you could end up paying more money than you intended. So how do you spot the right moment to close the deal?

Halo Financial and our expert dealers are friendly, approachable and patient. We’ll help you choose the best time to trade and the best way of moving your money around. We’re good at explaining things because we understand the needs of people who’re unfamiliar with the complexities of the world’s financial markets. As a result we can help you stand back and take stock of your priorities. We’ll explain your options and help you explore the possibilities without blinding you with science. Whatever your plans may entail, we’ll encourage you to look at the monetary aspects with fresh eyes whilst we will work hard to get the very best exchange rate for you.
