LAPADA have formed a partnership with Currencies Direct, a foreign exchange brokerage using dedicated phone dealers to buy and sell currency for transactions at the most favourable rates. Having already shared a stand with Currencies Direct at both the LAPADA London Fair and the Summer Olympia, LAPADA Chief Executive Sarah Percy Davies has been impressed with the personal attention art and antiques dealers have received, as well as the potential for maintaining profit margins when dealing overseas.
Among those who have already made use of this new Priceless Payments services are sculpture dealers Garret & Hurst who were delighted to point to a recent saving of over £140 on a single ™19,650 transaction, compared to the cost of the same transaction via their normal bank.
LAPADA members enjoy preferential rates but the service is open to all dealers. For more information contact LAPADA on 0207 823 3511 or go to www.currenciesdirect.com
