Case Study 1

Mr & Mrs Smith, from Derry, wanted to purchase a property in Quigley's Point Co. Donegal. The purchase price was €262,649.00. On the 2.2.07 Complete Currency gave them a GBPEUR rate of €1.5085 translating to a Sterling purchase price of £174,112.69. The best rate that the Smiths could negotiate with their own bank was a rate of €1.4449 which would have meant a purchase price of £181,776.59. The Complete Currency saving in this case was £7,663.90.

Case Study 2

Mr & Mrs Jones work in Derry and live in Muff, Co. Donegal. Their mortgage is €950/mth or €11,400/year. The average exchange rate from their bank in 2006 was €1.4338 which meant they paid £7,950.84 after currency conversion but they also paid bank Telegraphic Transfer fees (12 x £25) of £300 plus bank FX commission (12 x 2%) of £159.01 giving a grand total for the year of £8,409.85 paid out.

In January 2007 Mr & Mrs Jones came to Complete Currency and decided to lock in a fixed rate of exchange for 12 months. As Complete Currency provide superior rates to the banks the Jones's secured a rate of €1.5000 guaranteed free from FX fluctuations. This means that they know their total mortgage payment for 2007 will be £7,600.00 and only £7,600.00 as Complete Currency do not charge transfer fees or commission. The total saving to the Jones's for 2007 against 2006 will be £809.85.

Case Study 3

In June 2006, the Browns from Derry wanted to purchase a pre-plan 2 bedroom apartment in a new development in Spain. The purchase price was €285,000.00 and the transaction consisted of a deposit and staged payments up to 70% with the balance payable upon completion. The Browns took out a Sterling mortgage then came to Complete Currency and secured a rate of €1.4570 for the initial deposit of 20% in June (bank rate was €1.4263, saving was £842.05) and at the same time secured forward contract rates for the 15% due in September '06 at €1.4530 (bank rate was €1.4215, saving £651.98) and 15% due in December at €1.4502 (bank rate was €1.4200, saving £626.94). The penultimate payment of 20% was due in March 2007 but after discussion with Complete Currency the Browns decided to hold to see how rates would develop with the objective of securing a better rate closer to March 2007. Complete Currency contacted the Browns in December 2006 and indicated that the rate available at the time was €1.4969 which was duly secured for the 20% March payment (the spot rate for March was €1.4701 and bank rate was €1.4411, saving £1,474.42).

In May 2007 the Browns sold the property for a profit of €35,000 and used Complete Currency to repatriate the Euros into Sterling at €1.4720 (bank rate was €1.5010, saving was £459.38). By using Complete Currency for their FX transactions the Browns made a saving of £4,054.77.
