Foreign Currency Exchange Houses

As banks normally charge far above the current foreign currency exchange rates on the international market, there is a clear advantage in using a currency broker since most of these companies will offer rates far closer to the 'live' rates on the market.

Furthermore, these companies operate on a no-commission, no-fee basis, since their profits stem from the small margins they glean from the exchange rates. So whereas a bank would levy additional commission charges and transfer fees for transferring your currency to its international destination, a currency trading brokerage will charge none, which means additional savings for you.

The Cyprus Mortgage Jungle

In the Republic of Cyprus, mortgages were still a relatively new phenomenon at the start of the property boom in about 2002. Through the next few years, as local lenders began to find their feet in the overseas mortgage market, a number of less savoury practices were employed by a number of Cypriot property developers to effectively get mortgages on real estate they had already sold to clients.
