Your business can benefit by getting the FX solution that best suits your needs.

Ensuring you have the right foreign exchange (FX) solution for your business is important. Any business with currency exposure needs to manage FX risk, particularly in volatile markets.

Foreign exchange risk is your exposure to fluctuating exchange rates. Foreign exchange markets are volatile and constantly moving. These movements can have implications for any business that has receipts and/or payments in a foreign currency. On conversion, these receipts/payments can change in value from one day to the next, depending on the rate at which they are exchanged.

You could benefit from FX risk management if you’re:

  • An importer or exporter with invoices or receipts quoted in foreign currencies
  • A borrower with loans denominated in foreign currencies
  • An investor in overseas assets denominated in foreign currencies
  • Repatriating overseas profits
  • Paying or receiving other foreign currency amounts
