Each time a decision is made by either country’s central bank about inflation often creates waves within the foreign exchange market. As do the opinions and thoughts of politicians that are voiced in parliament, on the TV or even via social media.  

The rand is a fairly new currency, introduced into the-then Union of South Africa in 1961. The strength of the rand relies heavily on the economic development of the country, which in recent years has been a struggle. On the other side, with uncertainty over Great Britain’s involvement with EU, the pound also suffers periods of uncertainty. With that in mind, if you’re making international payments between the UK and South Africa, it may be important to consider how to make the most of your money given the volatile foreign exchange market.
