More about international money transfers for financial institutions

Supporting fluctuating cash requirements

We support the fluctuating cash requirements of financial institutions through buying back foreign cash, foreign cheques and travellers’ cheques and crediting your account usually within 48 hours.

Telegraphic transfers vs. bank drafts
  • Telegraphic transfers are immediate electronic transfers of foreign funds, which we can settle in a payee’s bank account usually within 48 hours – in over 140 currencies.
  • Bank drafts are cheques drawn in foreign currency, which we can deposit at an overseas financial institution usually within 48 hours – in 16 currencies.
Cash vs. travellers’ cheques
  • Cash is more widely accepted by businesses. Using cash incurs no fees or charges.
  • Travellers’ cheques aren’t as widely accepted, but are safer than cash because of our worldwide refund assistance. They are accepted at over one million locations worldwide and have no expiry date.

Both are ideal for destinations where cards are not readily accepted.
