The market rate and the customer rate – what’s the difference?
The market rate is also known as the interbank rate. It is the exchange rate at which the banks borrow and lend to each other. This is usually made in large amounts over short-term loan periods. These loans are made at low-interest rates reserved almost entirely for banks, financial institutions and registered money lenders.
The customer rate consists of the market rate plus a margin added by a foreign exchange provider. While the banks may have inflated margins and transfer fees, at OFX, we keep our margins modest to offer competitive customer rates, which can save you money.
