The main benefits of choosing a money transfer provider through FXcompared are:

Safe, trustworthy and secure alternative to using your bank: We have a very detailed review process to ensure that a provider is only listed on FXcompared if they meet stringent product, legal, financial and regulatory requirements. Each provider is regulated by the required financial authorities, for example the FCA in the UK and FinCEN in the USA. All client funds must always be kept in segregated accounts at a broker so that the funds are safe and protected.

Best prices and low or no-fee options: The providers on our site all offer prices that are cheaper than the standard bank’s money transfer rates. Above minimum transfer levels, most providers offer no fee options.

Specialist service: The providers on FXcompared offer dedicated service compared to a typical bank call center. The providers can advise on currencies and additional products such as forward contracts or hedging. Each provider may also offer additional local market and local language support for key currencies and countries. We list this information within our comparison results table.

Local market service: We believe it is important to be able to offer local market money transfer services. For example if you are living in the US, you would like to speak with someone on US timelines and be able to send your funds to a local US bank account as part of the transfer process.
