What is TransferWise?Asset

I am Papazon (@nomadkazoku) In preparation for moving to Malaysia.

I am in charge of asset management of family, who repeatedly sends money overseas every month.

I was shocked by the fact that Japanese banks and securities accounts were “almost frozen” when I moved abroad, so I created an American account that allowed me to hold assets regardless of where I lived.

Although it was good to have made an account, I thought that “the fee of overseas remittance seems to be high”, and when I investigated it, I found a service with a good reputation.

Its name is “TransferWise

Mr. Manab, a blogger with annual sales of 100 million yen, also recommends it😁

TransferWise’s convenient tool “Exchange Rate Alert” function.

  1. Once a day, you will be notified by e-mail of the specified exchange rate.
  2. Notify me by e-mail that the exchange rate exceeds the specified number

If you do not need to rush the remittance, you can use the notification (2) to wait for the desired exchange rate and make an overseas money transfer at a reasonable price.

Disadvantages of TransferWise

TransferWise’s remittance limit is 1 million yen.

If you send money of more than 1 million yen,
it is necessary to divide it into multiple times, and the fee will also be more expensive.

If you want to make a high-value money transfer, separately, by combining the foreign currency remittance account and Forex account, it is likely to be advantageous to build a remittance system.

However, in order to make a high remittance profit, it seems that a reasonable condition is also necessary.
Example) Deposits of 10 million yen or more, etc.
