Businesses need up to date figures for accurate; budgeting, calculating, cash flow forecasting, conversion of sales invoices and purchases and more.
3. Forward purchase – Just like spot transactions, forward contracts can be booked with Smart Currency technology and back office. Just choose the currency cross, volume and length of hedge you require to protect your bottom line.
4. Spot and forward transaction – Offers both the functionality to send funds and automatically hedge any associated risk. This may be in the form of; lending, borrowing, investing etc. When there is a time delay between paying and a return of funds, this ensures the exact amount that is expected is returned no matter what happens in the currency markets.
5. Cross border payments – STP (Straight through processing) for international payments, receipts and sharing of beneficiary details.
6. Same-currency payments – Very few businesses purely make payments internationally, most will be paying in the same currency. To enable businesses to process all their transactions with a single provider, we offer same-currency transfers alongside the transfers with a foreign exchange element to them.
