Foreign Exchange Risk Management

Forex (FX) risk management overlooks international financial transfers for clients or businesses safely and securely, for better value and faster transfers.

What Are Forex Transfers?

An FX money transfer is a safe and secure way to make international payments, either as a gift or as a purchase, which may be better value and faster than using your bank. It can also be used to collect regular salary or pension payments if you’re moving abroad. You can use an international money transfer company to make both one-off and regular international payments. You can also use to send a larger sum, for instance to cover the deposit if you’re buying a property abroad.

How Do Foreign Exchange Transfers Work?

Thousands of people make foreign exchange money transfers each day, safely and securely. When sending money abroad, foreign currency exchange swaps one local currency into another. An international money transfer through a bank or transfer services allows a client or business to convert their existing currency into the desired foreign currency, using exchange rates based on the global trade markets.

Why Is Forex Transfer Management Needed?

Today, sending money abroad can be done in a matter of minutes regardless of your location. With the development of digital banking and online apps for money transfers, you can make international money transfers and exchange multiple currencies in the comfort of your home.

For regular payments (for example, if you pay a mortgage abroad or transfer a salary) our FX risk management experts can seek out potential benefits on transfer fees and assess the risk of the transaction. Additionally, it can also help you lock in an exchange rate to regulate the amount you pay in a foreign currency. For one-time payments, locking in exchange rates can also be useful if you need to make a large transfer at an upcoming given date and if the market is unpredictable.

That’s where we can help. Reach out to FX providers like ourselves to make sure you negotiate the best deal when sending money abroad.
