Top Four International Money Transfer Destinations

The largest amounts of currencies transferred overseas have been researched by the Currency Index and some of the results have been very surprising, these large amounts of foreign currency are mainly from investors, but also those buying properties overseas.

Number One International Money Transfer Destination - Spain

The most popular money transfer destination, for the 6th year in a row, is Spain. Experts feel that this is due to very favourable exchange rates where expats can get 8% more for their money than they have been able to do previously, which is encouraging even more expat investments in Spain, year on year. In 2011 it was reported that 24.99% of all international transfers were sent to Spain as it continues to be a top holiday and second home destination. Although, due Brexit and the plummeting Pound, the year ahead may see properties being sold in Spain and the proceeds repatriated to the UK, favouring the reverse in the currency’s fortunes.

Number Two International Money Transfer Destination – United Kingdom

The biggest surprise in the research was perhaps that the United Kingdom took second place in the top 4 international money transfer destinations with 18% of all international money transfers. Experts feel this could be down to people returning back from homes overseas or returning their money to UK based accounts due to fears of the Brexit and fear of a euro crisis.

Number Three International Money Transfer Destination – France

With 14.83% of all international money transfers France comes in 3rd place of the 4 most popular international money transfer destinations and again, similarly to Spain, it is thought that this may be down to the area being a popular holiday and holiday home destination. FC Exchange feel that France is actually a more popular destination for holiday homes with a higher level of interest for France than Spain, so this area could soon be more popular for international money transfers.

Number Four International Money Transfer Destination – USA

The USA takes fourth place as most popular money transfer destination with 9.01% of transactions of international money transfers. Experts feel that this could be down to doubt of Brexit and are opting for holiday homes and second homes in America instead of Europe.
