All about Foreign Exchange
Prior to end of the Second World War the UK did not effectively have in place any form of foreign currency control regulations.  It didn’t need to – it was a major exporter of foreign exchange (“FX”). 

However, after the Second World War this all changed, the United States had taken over the UK’s place as being the premier foreign currency exporter and strict currency control regulations were needed for a period of almost 35 years (1945 – 1980).  During this period UK banks either could not transacted in FX, or it simply wasn’t profitable to do so.  Consequently, FX trading by UK banks was minimal.
However, all this was to change with the introduction of Thatcherism monetary policies in the early 1980s and suddenly it became extremely profitable for UK banks to be involved in FX transactions.  Consequently branches of UK banks began to offer FX services as wide and varied as simply changing money and notes to far more complex bills of exchange and bills of lading. 

Although still comparatively small, FX is now considered a major revenue earner for domestic UK banks; with different banks offering different services to its customers, some more comprehensive and complex than others.  That said, most high street banks in the UK tend to offer straightforward currency exchange services.
