Currency Hedging

Effortless management of currency risks and FX deals

Companies operating in a multi-currency environments may be exposed to big translation and transaction risks due to the fluctuation of currency exchange rates. Good governance requires controlling that risk, however, reporting it centrally often becomes cumbersome. Consequently, foreign currency hedging may be handled locally by individuals with limited information, which in the worst-case can result into even bigger risks 

Continuous, centralized visibility to the foreign currency positions allows the corporation to execute a group-wide hedging policy while supporting the off-shore entities in managing their risks locally when necessary. Implementing a solution that collects the currency exposure information and hedging activities into a single interface not only supports governance excellency but also allows for cost savings in terms of FX (foreign exchange) pricing and reduced work time.
