Currency Exchange

Transferring money overseas is something that almost every expatriate has had to do and from experience we know that it can be costly, slow and not always secure. We have teamed up with OFX (formerly CanadianForex) to provide our clients with a cost effective and simple way of transferring funds overseas. You will find that an international money transfer is much cheaper and quicker using OFX.


We are delighted to have partnered with OFX the foreign currency and international payments specialist. They offer a better alternative to banks, helping clients lower the cost of international payments.

An added Benefit:

To receive two free transfers, quote The Expatriate Group when phoning Toronto 1-800-680-0750, London/OFX +44 207 614 4119 (Stewart).
