When making a large international money transfer or sending large amounts of money abroad, you might want to consider using  these events in your favour. Currency changes might be expected close to a significant economic event. You might want to  plan to make international money transfers when the rate is favourable. Of course, it can work both ways – you can find rates that are not in your favour too. You should always consult an expert and make a smart decision if you are looking for the ‘right time’. Following economic news and currency exchange rates might also be enlightening.

We hope this high-level economic calendar for 2019 has assisted you with finding the right timing for your international money transfers. Please do come back here for more updates.
