FABULOUS

published

I received an inheritance from the UK, my account manager was patient, understanding and professional and guided me through every step whilst providing almost 6% more than my bank could.

Excellent customer service and good rates, one confusing flaw.

published

TorFX says they have joint accounts, turns out they don't. Their idea of a "joint account" is that two people can share the same login details i.e. share a single account. Doh. This was very confusing and wasted quite a bit of time in my scenario of coordinating a series of related transfers between two people in different countries.
Customer service was otherwise great (thanks Natasha). I hope you prevail and get your IT and marketing people to pull their heads out of their fundaments and stop pretending that you have joint accounts, and actually implement them properly (i.e. two separate and distinct logins that can see the same set of contracts and transactions).

Better options out there

published

Have used ozforex, xetrade, and torfx. Torfxs rates over the years no longer match xetrades on the currencies I used. Its like since they won the canstar award they now slightly rip you off. Another annoying thing is the need to call them or receive a call when transferring money. Very annoying when you are overseas.

My suggestion use xtetrade

Appreciate the comment, but in all fairness I shouldnt have to join other companies, to get their rates and then for you to "try to beat them". You should offer the lowest rates before I have to put in that effort.

Total crap

published

They took 6 days to tell me a US account, which i have previously transferred to with another broker, was "non-compliant".

Tor: Our compliance team has decided your account is non-compliant and we won't transfer the money
Me: Oh, can you explain to me why it is non-compliant
Tor: No the compliance team won't tell me
Me: Can you please ask the compliance team why?
Tor: I've spoken to them and i can't tell you.

Wow, you guys are so transparent and helpful.

Would have been 8k better off with my bank

published

I exchanged 200k. If I had used the banks I would have been 8k better off. Also money is paid into their account overseas with no apparent security confirming where and who has your money. Would not recommend forex at all. Stick with your bank.

Customer service less than helpful

published

I found the customer service to be less than helpful. Once they get you signed up you have to keep chasing them with any queries you have as they won’t answer emails in a timely manner. This was frustrating because I had a limited time window to get my account up and running to transfer funds from Japan. As a new customer I did have a few questions as a lot of money was involved by our standards, but maybe for them only the really big fish get the best customer service.

Amazing Customer Service

published

I'm very impressed with the level of service provided by TofFx. My account manager (same person each time) has regularly kept in touch and finalised my transaction without any trouble. I can't believe there is no charge for this.

Something difficult made easy

published

I found TorFX to be extremely helpful, the process to transfer funds from NZ to Australia was explained very simply and I had constant support and instruction. I would definitely recommend using this service over bank transfers, this is simple and a huge saving on fees.
Thank you TorFX - it was a pleasure to do business with you

Very Smooth and easy process

Very smooth and easy process from end to end. From initial estimate to funds landing in my account, Edward Zieger was there to answer any and all questions i had and beat the banks rate, AND I WORK FOR ONE OF THE BIG 4 BANKS!

When you send foreign currency overseas you lock in the rates and pay for it before the funds are released. Once you have accepted the locked-in rate, it doesn't change.
