Exotic currency


What are exotic currencies?

2 minute read

When making an international payment, there are a large number of high street banks and foreign exchange providers that will allow you to exchange pounds for euros or dollars. However, if you need to make a payment in a less commonly traded currency, you will find that a number of exchange providers are unable to cater for your needs.

These currencies are known as ‘exotic currencies’ within the industry and are a specialist product for many FX providers, which is why it can be challenging to find an option, let alone an efficient and cost-effective one. Fortunately, at moneycorp we pride ourselves on providing a specialist service designed to get your money where it needs to be.


How to trade exotic currency pairs

A moneycorp account allows you to exchange up to 33 different currencies online, providing a wide range of exotic currency pairs to cater for your online money transfer needs. In addition, our team of currency specialists can offer you access to over 120 different currencies over the phone, helping you through the process of making your currency transfer.

Open an international payments account or sign up for a business account for your corporate FX needs.
