- Mitigate your foreign exchange risk
- Protect your operating margins
- Improve your cash management and flow
- Improve all aspects of international payments (speed, cost, execution and delivery)
- Develop a long term foreign exchange hedging strategy

Excel Currencies offer a range of tools to help protect your profit margins...
Projects such as building Hotels or even a multi-property purchase will increase your risk dramatically with exposure to the FX markets. As the amount of money transferring abroad is large and the completion date is generally a long way away, rate fluctuations could and may go against you, costing you potentially thousands. By speaking to one of our corporate team today, you could take advantage of our wealth of knowledge to help minimise this risk and protect your profit margins.
Exchange Rates change twice a second and there are many strategies that we can put in place to hedge your risk. We offer a range of hedging tools to help our clients manage their FX exposure.
You can buy currency immediately as a 'spot' purchase, so called because you are buying currency on the spot. Settlement for a purchase of this type is 3 working days and upon receipt of cleared funds a transfer can take place. A spot purchase would normally satisfy someone who has an immediate requirement for the currency and wants to exchange right away.
Forward contracts are available for both businesses and individuals wishing to protect themselves from the risks of an ever-moving market. They allow you to lock into an exchange rate for a period of up to two years, giving you access to a fixed rate for the duration of your contract, and meaning you can concentrate on growing your business instead of worrying about exchange rates.
If you would like to target a rate that’s not currently available in the market, then market orders could help you achieve this. This allows you to set an Exchange Rate above the current market rate and purchase the amount you want when the rate has been reached.
This allows you to set a 'worst case' scenario Exchange Rate lower than what the current market level is showing. If the market moves against you, this type of order will be automtically triggered, locking you in at that rate and protecting you from further losses.
