Barclays Wealth iAlert has been launched.
The free online tool, which monitors foreign exchange (FX) rates, is part of an enhanced foreign exchange offering for clients of Barclays Wealth International.
Barclays Wealth iAlert allows clients to monitor up to 75 currency pairs, with subscribers receiving email alerts when their pre-selected currency pairs reach the upper or lower levels they previously identified.
In addition, through the iAlert website, clients can now access real time foreign exchange data, including:
- Currency and historical currency rates
- Extensive Barclays Wealth research and market commentary
- FX tutorials including videos on the basics of FX and buying a property in a foreign currency.
Shaun Phillips, Managing Director, Barclays Wealth International, said: “For our clients, having access to up-to-date information on foreign exchange rates is an important factor in managing their wealth effectively, yet few people have the time to watch currency rates as closely as they would like to.
“Barclays Wealth iAlert is a valuable, time-saving addition to our foreign exchange service and is complimented by access to research publications and tutorials including case studies and online demonstrations which are designed to enable clients to make more informed decisions.”
Barclays Wealth iAlert is available to all existing clients.
Individuals who are not clients are invited to sign up to a free 60-day trial. The trial period will be extended to any individual who opens an international bank account with Barclays Wealth International.
