Whether you’re acquiring or selling a profitable art piece, arranging an exhibition, or paying catalogue printers abroad – whatever international money transfers you may need to make – fluctuating currency markets and constant government policy changes mean that one piece of bad economic news can have a big impact and turn a profitable deal into a loss making one. If your art or antiques company makes regular international payments, it is essential that you have the right kind of currency buying strategy to protect your profit margins and avoid unnecessary losses from exchange rate fluctuations.
