I’m moving to New Zealand in 3 months’ time, can I secure the exchange rate now while the NZD looks good?

Yes, in a recent change to the South African Exchange Control Regulations, Private individuals (South African residents) can now use Forward Exchange Contracts to secure currency for future dated payments. This is great news for anyone looking to move overseas. Forward contracts are an ideal tool to use if you have a transfer to make in the future and want to remove the risk of the exchange rate going against you.
