How long will my transfer take?

Generally, no time at all.

Since we have a global network of bank accounts, making a transfer with us is not only secure, but also very fast.
As soon as you send us your funds, we’ll convert and transfer them to your recipient.

The time it takes for us to transfer the funds to your recipient depends on the country, but in most cases it takes 1-2 business days.

How does it work? 

  • Once your funds have cleared in our account and we’ve converted them to your desired currency, the funds will be available for onward payment into the recipient’s bank account. 
  • Provided all funds are received before the cut-off times noted below, we’ll usually start processing the conversion and your payment instructions on the same day.   
  • The cut-off time that is applicable to your transfer will vary, depending upon what currency you are converting to. 

Please see below the cut off times per currency:

Currency you are converting your funds to: Cut off time to receive cleared funds for same day/ next day transfer processing [on a business day* (GMT)]

Depending upon your recipient’s country, it generally takes 1-4 business days to complete the entire process of receiving your funds and sending them to your recipient. 

* a business day is a day, other than a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, on which banks are open for business in London and will not include any public holidays in the country of the recipient’s account.
