The world is getting smaller and smaller, with more international trade and travel than ever before.

Banks often don’t provide a fair rate, giving a large spread on your money. Banks have high overhead costs, big infrastructure, administration and legacy costs. They use the profits from their currency exchange business to subsidize other parts of the business. However, as the consumer, you should find the best place to exchange your money, not the biggest one. KnightsbridgeFX provides the lowest rates of any institution in Edmonton. Where other banks are providing 2.6% rates, KnightsbridgeFX is in the 0.1% to 0.5% range.
