Currencies Direct’s new office is open for business

Currencies Direct, providers of non-banking international payment services, celebrated the official opening of their Portugal office on September 22 with an inaugural party in Almancil.

More than 100 people attended the event organised by Alisia Alao from B&W Events with entertainment provided by The Great Martini magician and saxophonist Martin Teutscher.

Keith Spitalnick, Regional Sales Manager for Currencies Direct, was joined by head of sales Peter Loveday, with both travelling from the offices of the firm in Spain, while Jo Malkin and Philippa Rowat of the new Portugal office welcomed the guests.

Keith Spitalnick said: “Jo Malkin and Philippa Rowat, who run the office in Almancil, have lived in the area for eight years so they have the local insight to really assist you. I am really confident that with their expertise and our money saving service we can really benefit the ex-pat community in the Algarve.”

Jo Malkin added: “Many people don’t realise that this is an alternative to the bank when it comes to international payments. We can save as much as 3% on the price of a property, which puts thousands of extra pounds in your pocket.

“If you are one of the approximately 40,000 expats living in Portugal we would love to talk to you about how we can help you with your international transactions.”
