Transferwise has some of the lowest fees in the business. You may have to get a business account though so not sure how much it costs.

Thank you! I'll look into this. I've never heard of it.

Having done transatlantic business for many years, that sum is high enough I can bet you’ll get the best rate from a regular old wire transfer. Best case is if your bank and your clients bank are both big international banks. Otherwise there can be a hidden third intermediary bank in the mix.

In my experience I wouldn’t have known the intermediary bank even existed had I not spoken with a banker on the phone and pressed the issue.
