World First Foreign Exchange

British Jewellery & Giftware International has launched a new member service, offering competitive foreign exchange services in conjunction with World First Ltd. As international currency markets become more and more volatile in the wake of events in the Euro zone and the USA, it is increasingly important to protect your business from the swings in the value of sterling on the world market.

British Jewellery & Giftware International has negotiated a favourable package for members with World First Foreign Exchange, which will allow all Federation members to take advantage of special rates when making, or receiving payments in foreign currencies, saving up to 4% on transactions compared to banks. In addition to favourable terms on “spot” transactions, World First also offer a range of hedging and forward payment options, which allow companies to protect themselves from the risks of adverse currency movements, while benefiting from upturns in the market. World First also operate domestic currency accounts in many countries, allowing members to make or receive local payments, avoiding high international payment fees.

World First is ranked as the 3rd largest currency broker in the UK market, and was recognised as “Service Business of the Year” in 2010. They are authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Agency, and maintain strict controls to safeguard clients’ funds, including segregated client accounts.
