Big business or small operator, if you're doing international business you need the right foreign exchange solution. Find out which products work best for you.

Why foreign exchange solutions?

Foreign exchange (often known as FX) solutions aren't just for big organisations. Any business that carries out financial transactions in a currency other than Australian dollars (AUD) needs to manage its foreign exchange risk, particularly in volatile markets. Here are some of the situations where foreign exchange options could support your business:

  • You import or export products and your invoices or receipts are quoted in foreign currencies
  • You have loans in foreign currencies
  • You have overseas assets or investments in foreign currencies
  • You're converting profits in a foreign currency into Australian dollars
  • You pay or receive any foreign currency amounts.
