Sending funds via Moneycorp
Moneycorp is a currency-conversion specialist which may be able to offer better exchange rates than your bank. If your funds are not held in your WhiskyInvestDirect account currency (either British Pounds or US Dollars, depending on what you selected when you opened the account) and you want to send a sum to WhiskyInvestDirect worth the equivalent of £5,000 (about $6,500), or more, then Moneycorp provides an alternative to converting and sending your funds through the main banking system.
The offer-to-bid spread of a retail bank may be more than 3%. Moneycorp quotes currency on narrower 'commercial' spreads. These spreads are dependent on market conditions but for major currencies converted into British Pounds or US Dollars the rate will typically be around 0.5% above the live exchange rate. For minor currencies the rate will be around 0.65% above the live exchange rate. You should also consider the transfer charges for sending your money to Moneycorp's bank account in London.
- Ensure that your WhiskyInvestDirect account has been validated prior to sending funds. This will help avoid delays. You will find details by logging in and going to ACCOUNT > VALIDATION.
- You will need to wire your currency to the appropriate Moneycorp account (see details below). Be sure to cite the reference: CK7700349291KC <your WhiskyInvestDirect username>. For your safety, please also email or telephone WhiskyInvestDirect to tell us the funds are on the way.
It is important that you send your funds from the same bank account that you have linked to your WhiskyInvestDirect account.
- Upon receipt of your funds, Moneycorp will call us, and we will authorise them to convert your money into your WhiskyInvestDirect account currency.
- Moneycorp will wire your converted funds to your WhiskyInvestDirect account.
