Fix or choose rate

Choose your exchange rate

If you need to convert a large amount into another currency, but don't need to make the transfer immediately, you may want to wait a bit and convert the money when exchange rates improve.

You can place a Limit Order with us, to convert your money at a specific exchange rate - and we'll make the transfer as soon as the exchange rate reaches the agreed level.

  • Place a single Limit Order or one to 'take a profit' and another to 'stop a loss'.
  • Minimum transaction amount for a Limit Order is US$50,000 (or currency equivalent).
  • You can set an expiry date for your Limit Order which can be any time up to 12 months in the future.
  • We offer Limit Orders for foreign exchange between over 20 currencies

You should be aware of the potential risk of foreign exchange rates changing. So if you convert your money back to the original currency, you may incur a loss as a result of movements in the markets.
