REPATRIATING SHARE INCOME

With one in four of the UK’s largest companies under foreign ownership, it’s not just our colleagues we leave behind when we move jobs. It’s important we are able to absorb earnings from share schemes into a larger investment portfolio. In the rush to repatriate the money, it’s easy to forget the importance of the currency exchange process.

CURRENCY AND STOCK MARKETS RISE AND FALL, JUST NOT TOGETHER

In a market where every winner begets a loser, knowing when to buy – and when to sell – is everything. Unfortunately, the best planning in the world can be neutered by an unsympathetic currency exchange. What happens if your exit from a USlisted stock coincides with the dollar’s worst performance in a year? Or if your meticulously-planned investment in an Asian fund is threatened by the Bank of England’s downbeat predictions for the pound?

THE SMART WAY TO INVEST OVERSEAS

Regardless of whether you’re investing in a foreign enterprise or repatriating your offshore earnings, you should have a currency conversion strategy in place. Political and economic uncertainty makes foreign exchange transactions an unpredictable and potentially costly exercise. The good news is that peace of mind is just a few simple steps away.
CONSULT A CURRENCY EXPERT

As things stand, British retirees who emigrate to Europe see their state pension rise by a minimum of 2.5% per year under the so-called “triplelock” system. Exiting the European Economic Area means the UK would need to negotiate individual reciprocal agreements to replace the current system. An impasse could lead to a reduction of 50k over next 20 years.

CURRENCY SOLUTIONS FOR GREATER FLEXIBILITY

If you know your entry / exit point is three months from now but you’re worried about the trajectory of the home or local currency, then a forward contract might be the right solution. It allows the flexibility to secure the best rate with a deposit with a view to paying the balance when the currency is needed.

WATCH OUT FOR HIDDEN FEES

Many people, for convenience, rely on banks to handle their international payments. Often, though, there are better rates available elsewhere along with specialist advice that can mitigate the risks of volatile currency markets.

“Caxton were professional and proactive, ensuring I was kept updated about relevant currency issues. This meant I got the best possible rate as result of receiving the right support at every step of the process”.
