Our Mission

Our Risk Based Approach: A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned

Foreign Exchange is very much the business of every importer and exporter despite many thinking otherwise. If undertaken with a common sense business approach, it can even add to the bottom-line instead of constantly subtracting from it. Our goal is to maximize our clients' returns and minimize any potential loss to your foreign payables and receivables by applying these principles in a disciplined and pragmatic process. We rely on facts, not speculation to assess and institute a robust FX management programme that offers you full visibility and predictability into your cash flows yet strives to capture a positive return as well.

We Are Different

  • Economies of Scale

    When you trade in the interbank foreign exchange market you are essentially buying/selling currencies at the wholesale rate and the volume you deal reflects the price you pay. We have set minimums per transaction and when possible aggregate our trades to deal at the best possible wholesale rate and then pass this saving on to you, our clients.

  • Mitigate Your Risk

    Foreign exchange dealing involves an inherent risk as exchange rates can fluctuate many times a second and unless you have access to the interbank market and rates, you are not only exposed to dealing on retail rates, but without an experienced trader to manage your orders every second of the day you further expose yourself to large intraday rate swings that can drastically increase your costs of purchasing and selling your foreign exchange payables and receivables.

  • Trader Expertise

    Each client receives our professional, trading expertise on every order. We actively analyze a multitude of foreign exchange rates, ancillary markets and utilize a number of proprietary trading systems in order to efficiently work client orders, hitting the best rates for a given time period. Let us know what you need and when you need it and then leave your orders in our capable hands saving you time, effort and most importantly - money!
