Do senior figures and board members need to be informed of your FX exposure?

In a time when senior figures need to be aware of the potential risks to your business, SmartHedge can generate clear and concise monthly valuations, giving you real time visibility and consolidation on your hedging position.

Is preparation for audits strenuous and time-consuming?

SmartHedge can generate annual valuations for audits that include all hedges that you have in your portfolio, even those from third parties. You’ll no longer have to wait for counterparties to submit their valuations for your positions.

Do you need to analyse your currency exposure efficiently?

Our platform gives you a clear view of how your hedging strategy is performing as well as potential market shifts, so you can make the necessary reviews and adjustments.

Do you struggle to understand how cash-flows could be impacted by currency fluctuations?

SmartHedge collates your cash-flows and hedges all in one place, making it easy to gain a greater understanding of how unhedged flows could impact your business.

Are your excel spreadsheets difficult to manage?

With SmartHedge, all your data is available on one, secure, cloud-based platform, which can be accessed from anywhere, 24/7. No need to store data on multiple spreadsheets that are prone to human error – SmartHedge collates everything, making it easy to view your overall position.

Are you able to back-test your hedging policy?

Using historical data, SmartHedge can back-test your hedging policy to assess how successful it’s been in the past and suggest improvements that can be made going forward.

So far, we’ve introduced SmartHedge to a number of clients, including the Institute of Physics Publishing and home appliance providers Ebac. After using the platform for several months, they explained that SmartHedge saves them time when preparing for audits, allows them to answer crucial questions about their hedging strategy and improves efficiency when dealing with ourselves here at Smart.
