What is the best way to transfer money from one currency to another without paying excessive commissions? What is the smartest way to handle different currencies when traveling? What is the future of the euro and Greece’s role in this collective? Recently, I spoke with Peter Lavelle of foreign exchange broker Pure FX about these topics and more. While Peter’s thoughts are useful, especially for expats living abroad, keep in mind that these are Peter’s views and not necessarily the best advice for you. I encourage you to do your homework before carrying out any significant currency exchanges!
Peter, what is your professional background?
I’m a writer by profession, and was hired by Pure FX a couple of years ago pretty specifically to write articles that visitors to our site might find helpful. That means I tend to mix between evergreen stuff about how best to send money abroad, as well as updates about what’s affecting the exchange rate.
Before Pure FX, I wrote for a printer inks manufacturer, ran a business writing CVs for non-native English speakers, and before that I did my two degrees in English Literature.
