Understanding our foreign exchange rates

When making transactions that involve foreign exchange in Coutts Online, the exchange rate you receive is based on the following:

  • Coutts Treasury Services acts as the principal price maker for client transactions.
  • The foreign exchange rate is determined by reference to wholesale interbank quotes sourced from Reuters/Bloomberg quoted as bid/ask.
  • We incorporate a spread to the wholesale interbank quote, which is added to or subtracted from the exchange rate, depending on whether you are buying or selling the foreign currency. This spread is variable and is determined by a range of factors including the transaction type, size, currencies, prevailing market conditions and overall cost of undertaking the transaction.
