Whether you’re buying a boat on the Med, pearls in Paris or a classic car in Cologne. Either way, it requires a degree of planning to ensure any savings aren’t lost in unforeseen currency fluctuations, charges and fees. With Caxton Premier there are no hidden fees, No additional charges, Just a great rate.

THE SMART WAY TO PAY

In any high value purchase there are a number of things that could derail the deal. A further level of complication is added in the form of currency conversion. Political and economic uncertainty makes foreign exchange transactions an unpredictable and potentially costly exercise.

CURRENCY SOLUTIONS FOR GREATER FLEXIBILITY

Spot contracts allow you to secure today’s great rate for use tomorrow, while forward contracts allow the flexibility to secure the best rate with a deposit with a view to paying the balance when the currency is needed.

THE SMART WAY TO PAY FOR LUXURY GOODS ABROAD

In any high value purchase there are a number of things that could derail the deal. A further level of complication is added in the form of currency conversion. 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

Exchanging funds and transferring them abroad always feels like a risk. But you can make the foreign exchange market work for you by buying currency when the rate is right, not when you need to make the payment. Having an expert on hand to answer questions and give expert assistance on the workings of international currency markets can only help.

CURRENCY SOLUTIONS FOR GREATER FLEXIBILITY

Spot contracts allow you to secure today’s great rate for use tomorrow, while forward contracts allow the flexibility to secure the best rate with a deposit with a view to paying the balance when the currency is needed. At Caxton you’ll be allocated your own dedicated account manager to help you identify the currency strategy that’s right for you.

WATCH OUT FOR HIDDEN FEES

Many people, for convenience, rely on their bank to handle foreign transactions. Unfortunately, banks and building societies view international payments as a niche – and lucrative – side business, charging transaction fees and offering a poor rate more often than not.

“When making high value international payments you’re looking for a great rate, excellent service and high level of trustworthiness. Caxton sets a high bar on each measure.”

TONY’S STORY

When Tony found his dream powerboat Caxton was on hand with a great rate to make sure the sale went without a (clove) hitch.

There’s a certain type of sailor who can’t get enough of England’s South Coast. There’s another type of sailor who prefers sun, calm seas and white sandy beaches. Caxton customer Tony is the latter. He loves his home in the UK, but prefers the Mediterranean when it comes to spending time on the water.

With few motorboats in the Solent larger than 50 feet, when the time came to upgrade he had to look further afield. He found his ideal match – a 72 foot GrandBanks – advertised for sale in Copenhagen of all places.

Once the negotiation was concluded with the vendor, he needed a partner who could arrange the speedy and secure transfer of currency. A longtime user of its International Payments Service, he didn’t think twice about turning to Caxton to help complete the deal.

He knew how proactive his Caxton account manager would be in securing the best exchange rate. Sure enough, Caxton’s rate alert service let him know at exactly the right moment to convert the capital. With the currency conversion squared away, Tony was able to focus on other complications, like the small matter of transporting his new yacht from Scandinavia to the Italian riviera!
