Re: Why use a currency broker not Transferwise?

Thinking about this again.. it is none of their business. They pay you the proceeds and what you do with it is entirely up to you. I think spainrico is right, they just want to get a commission.

The US lawyer who drew up our wills would not act as executor, saying it involved a conflict of interest. Instead we have appointed the trust department of a local bank as our executor. It so happens...
