Hi, I need to bring a large sum of money over from NZ to buy a property here in the coming week. Interest rates are not very favourable today - would you recommend doing it ASAP or holding off til mid- next week?

Hi Lucy -
Thanks for your question.
The Kiwi Dollar has endured a horrible week in the markets which has seen GBP NZD track up to 2.1500. Today’s session has however brought a slight improvement. Fears persist that the Reserve Bank of New Zealand will be cutting interest rates again before the end of the year – a move which would set it apart from other major global central banks.
For this reason, I would think seriously about taking advantage of this short term downward blip for GBP NZD because the forecast moving forward is relatively negative for Kiwi-sellers.
