Hello fools,

I'm seeking a little help on exchanging currency. I recieve some dividends twice a year in Pounds Sterling from a private company in the UK. Usually about 15000 Pounds a year. The company just sends a check in Pounds. Currently I deposit these into a brokerage account that converts them to $ at the going rate minus the spread and some fees. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the best rate with the lowest fees? I'm doing better with the brokerage firm than I would at a retail bank but it still cost a few hundred bucks every time I make a deposit. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
