Money Transfers

Sending money via Telegraphic Transfers

A Telegraphic Transfer (also known as a “Wire”) is an electronic transfer of funds directly credited to a beneficiary’s overseas bank account. A choice of more than 130 currencies is offered – click here for more details.

Telegraphic Transfers are normally used to directly credit accounts overseas, and are a quicker method of sending funds than drafts.

By sending a Telegraphic Transfer in the beneficiary’s currency you generally receive greater certainty on your payment – you can effectively “ lock in” the exchange rate, and know exactly how much is being transferred.

You can process a Telegraphic Transfer (also known as an International Payment) via Internet Banking.

A Draft is like a bank cheque made out in a foreign currency. It’s another way for you to make payments and settle a transaction overseas, especially if you don’t have the receiver’s electronic bank account details. Drafts can be sent overseas via mail and are available in a wide range of currencies. A choice of more than 25 currencies is offered – click here for more details.
