Generally, it may be beneficial to send your payment in the local currency of the beneficiary (i.e. Pounds Sterling for the United Kingdom).
U.S. Dollars sent to an account in a foreign currency could take longer and incur higher bank charges than if you send the local currency.
You would also be controlling the foreign exchange risk by obtaining a rate with TD Bank, where you have a banking relationship.
