*If you are sending money anywhere in the EEA (including the UK) the only permitted charging option for that payment will be Shared Charges. Shared Charges means you pay for the charges levied by Coutts and the beneficiary pays any charges levied by the beneficiary bank for receipt of the funds (a Payment Delivery Charge). If you are sending money outside the EEA then you may pay the Payment Delivery Charge to ensure the beneficiary receives the specific amount required. Charges quoted above may be subject to currency conversion where applicable. Please note in some cases, outside of an EU/EEA Member State, Switzerland, Monaco or San Marino where it is local banking practice, the intermediary and/or beneficiary bank may deduct their fee(s) from the payment in any event.

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.
