Who uses the IMTI™
Banks, money transfer providers, payments companies, credit card companies, Federal Reserve Banks, Corporates, Consultancies
To construct the IMTI™, FXcompared collects data on banks’ fees and foreign exchange (FX) margins monthly through mystery shopping on transactions of multiple sizes from modest-sized transactions to large consumer transactions (for example corresponding to USD1,000 to USD1m; see Methods). The fees and transaction costs are rebased to a common currency for ease of comparison across countries (i.e. USD1,000, USD10,000, GBP1,000 and GBP10,000). The rates banks charge customers for international money transfers are quite different across countries and across transaction sizes. Detailed methodology is here.
