cuts consumer cost with Currency Index currency index partnership

Photo credit: Images Money has launched a new partnership with Currency Index, offering real estate agents buyer leads and marketing services when they participate in their currency referral scheme.

The leading independent overseas property portal, with over 250,000 visitors and 5,000 property enquiries per month, has teamed up with the experienced FX specialists to help both agents and consumers through the process of purchasing property abroad.

The new agreement between the overseas property heavyweights will give agents who recommend clients to the FSA-regulated currency broker leads from, which means that a quick currency referral can help pay for their monthly marketing costs. Agents can list their properties across portals, and also receive qualified buyer leads from the TMC client referral team.

The deal is good for house hunters too. Currency conversions through major high street banks often lead to high exchange rates. The amount consumers spend on exchanging money is estimated to be £1 billion per year – in September, Consumer Focus even issued a super complaint to the Office of Fair Trading about the amount Britons pay in exchange charges. But Currency Index’s bank-beating services can keep the cost of a holiday home purchase down.

The partnership will integrate the currency specialist’s services seamlessly into the buying process, providing a dedicated point of contact to help agents and buyers at every stage of a property sale.

Commercial Director Robin Brayne commented:

"The integration of Currency Index into’s services will make a big difference to all of our customers. Agents will benefit from advertising on the portal and buyers can be assured of a cheaper exchange cost away from the high street. It’s great to be able to work with another experienced overseas company to provide a service that genuinely benefits everyone."
