Comparing Retail Exchange Rates

The total cost for 'Retail' exchange rates you receive from your bank or foreign exchange provider consists of the margin from the 'Wholesale' rate (interbank mid-rate) plus any fixed or percentage fees.

These margins and fees can vary significantly for International Money Transfers, Travel Money and prepaid multi-currency Travel Card transactions. Also the exchange rate margin will also vary depending on the currency pair and total amount.

Pound Sterling and Singapore Dollar Forecasts

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the GBP vs SGD, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

Pound Sterling (GBP)

GBP will rise to 1.25 against the euro according to Standard Bank. The coronavirus pandemic has replaced Brexit in the headlines and means that the deadline for a trade deal with the Eurozone this year could either be pushed back, delaying a risk for the currency, or see more favorable terms given to the U.K.

This is a remarkable change of fortunes for GBP which was sold-off after the Brexit vote and again after the virus forced a lockdown in London, the world’s largest foreign-exchange centre. Against the dollar, sterling touched the lowest level in 35 years in March as traders sought the safety of the USD.

Singapore Dollar (SGD)

At the end of March, Singapore's central bank eased its monetary policy, as widely expected, with the city-state's bellwether economy bracing for a deep recession due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The MAS said it would adopt a zero percent per annum rate of appreciation of the policy band starting at the prevailing level, currently slightly below the mid-point of the policy band.

The markets viewed this annoucement as showing the MAS has kept some fire-power in reserve and could intervene again to lower the SGD.

NAB told Bloomberg TV that it sees a recovery in Asian currencies in the 2nd half of the year if the coronavirus comes under control.

Overall, it was a mixed 2019 for the Singapore dollar, with small gains (<2 percent) against the euro and Australian dollar, but small losses against the US dollar and pound.

How to get Best GBP to SGD Exchange Rates

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

The transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
