I recently moved to Singapore working in an office full of Brits. They seem to have access to many different money transfer/wire services that give them much more competitive exchange rates when sending money from the UK to Singapore.
Unfortunately, I need to transfer money from my US based bank into my Singapore bank account on a fairly regular basis and do not think a standard international bank wire transfer earns me the most value.
Does anyone prefer a specific transfer service? Or know of a service with better exchange rates than a bank would provide? Not necessarily directed to only Americans but I've found many international services are not applicable for US based banks.
