What we offer

Spot contracts

So called because they’re done ‘on the spot’, this allows you to secure a rate and make your payments straight away. This is the ideal option if you’re a busy person and just need to get things moving as soon as possible!

Regular payments

You can set up a plan with us so that when we receive your money, we'll convert it quickly, reliably and securely. And you can choose if you want it converted at the rate on the day, or you can lock in a rate making budgeting a whole lot easier.

Send money to UK

It’s time to save you time and money when you send money to the UK. We thought that might grab your attention.

If you’re working in the UK and need to send your money back home, or for whatever reason you need to transfer money there, World First will make the process easy, and save you money too. It’s all because we take a smaller margin than the banks, which means we’re able to give you a better exchange rate.

Let’s say a client wanted to send €400,000 to the UK to pay the deposit on a new home there. Their bank offered them an exchange rate of 0.0753, which would have got them around £30,000. With World First, they were given a rate of 0.0785, which would have meant their money would have got them £1,000 more. That’s the sort of saving you could make, but it could be even more.

We’ve got all sorts of product available, and we’ll work with you to find the one that suits you best, from regular transfer plans and forward contracts where you can fix an exchange rate in advance, so you’ll always know what you get, to simple spot contracts where you can take the best rate on the day.

Then there are more complex hedging options which allow you to fix a rate, but – and here’s the clever bit - still benefit if the exchange rate goes in your favour when it’s time to make the payment. We’ll talk you through all your options, so you won’t have to worry about not understanding anything.

You’ll love our great customer service, and you even get your own dedicated contact. We pick up every single call in three rings, and our online system is so easy to use that it’s simple to transact whenever you like.

When you want to send money to the UK, you’ll find World First are the right people for the job. Like saving money? Who doesn’t?
