Top-Class Currency Transfer Service for France

Originally posted on & updated on 20th February, 2024

Here at MFH we believe in team work and transparency. We didn’t setup in business to charge for ad space or collect data to pass on to 3rd parties, we enjoy keeping our clients happy and care about their privacy. We fully appreciate we are in business thanks to them, and to our valued partners, our ethics have never changed.

Long Term FX Partnerships

When I met Jean-Luc at a summer barbecue in a village near Lyon in 2003, I didn’t realise we’d be working with the same insurance partners twenty years later! It’s a similar tale with our longstanding partnership with Currencies Direct who provide top class service and competitive rates for our clients from almost anywhere through their website, their app. or their handy multi-currency debit card.
 
Buying or selling property is about timing, and securing currency is an important part of that process. Read our partner Jack Wiles comments about how we work together to  provide our international clients with top service and the best outcome.

Working with Currencies Direct

“My name is Jack Wiles from Currencies Direct and I manage the company’s key partnerships. We have been working in partnership with My-French-House for the best part of two decades, which in fact as long as Foremost Currency has existed, before merging with Currencies Direct.

In this time, we have helped hundreds of Patrick’s clients achieve far better rates of exchange than high street banks, whilst  making the process of overseas transfers much swifter and more efficient.

There are a range of different people Currencies Direct can help. We help clients with smaller transfers such as living costs, long-term rental or mortgage payments as well as those with larger payments for property deposits & balances. We also help a variety of businesses with invoice payments, salaries, and day to day FX risk management.

You don’t need to have an account in a foreign country to use our services, as we can send funds to 3rd party accounts if there is proof of why funds are needed. People that use as are from all over the globe, and we trade over 40 different currencies. We are also fully authorised by FCA in the UK and the Bank of Spain in the EU as an E-money issuer.

Good Times for American Buyers

In recent times, we have seen a huge increase in interest from across the pond, with US clients purchasing their dream homes in France. While the USDEUR rate has retracted from the record highs we saw last year it’s still an excellent time for American buyers.

A US client of Patrick’s, who he referred over to us last year, was looking at buying somewhere in France. He knew he wanted to buy but hadn’t been able to find the time to get out to France for a serious look. He knew the exchange rate was fantastic at the time and wanted to take advantage of what might be the best deal he would ever get.

Despite not having found a property, the client decided to buy his Euros and hold them on account with us until he had found his dream home. Due to our licensing, funds can be held for as long as needed and in this case our client is still waiting to find that dream home. In doing so, he ensured that his property budget would remain separate from any currency fluctuations, and ensured that he had achieved a fantastic deal for his budget.

Top-Class Money Transfer Service

In my opinion, the reason why the partnership between Patrick and I has worked so well, for so long, is due to our shared view that top-class customer service, and holding ourselves to the highest standards, is the most important thing any of us can do.

If you are looking to find your dream home in France, Patrick is the man to do it and we hope we can assist in getting the money to the Notaire on your behalf to complete your purchase.”

Like us, many clients have entrusted Jack and the team, some have set up regular monthly payments years ago and never looked back. If you won’t settle for anything less that top-class service for your currency requirements, then talk to Jack directly or one of his colleagues.
