When making transactions that involve foreign exchange, 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/margin 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.
The spread is also referred to as FX margin fee when completing an international payment on online or mobile banking. This is a variable fee which is included within the exchange rates. It will not show as a separate charge on your statement.
For any card transactions made in currencies other than sterling, the transaction will be converted to sterling by Visa or MasterCard using the exchange rate on the day the transaction is processed. To compare Visa or Mastercard’s indicative exchange rates for today against that of the European Central Bank (ECB), please select the relevant card type and currency below.
