Foreign Exchange Facility Guarantee
|Our Foreign Exchange Facility Guarantee encourages your foreign exchange provider to forego the need for collateral when you purchase foreign exchange contracts to protect against currency fluctuations. This means you can mitigate the fluctuations in exchange rates without tying up your cash flow.
Stop worrying about exchange rates
Since export sales are often invoiced in the foreign buyer’s currency, fluctuations in exchange rates can make it a challenge to budget up-front costs and accurately gauge how much you’ll end up being paid. With a foreign exchange contract, your provider agrees to lock in the exchange rate on the contract.
Free up capital to take on more business
Our Foreign Exchange Facility Guarantee encourages your foreign exchange provider to forego the usual collateral requirement by providing them with a guarantee that covers their losses in the event that you fail to honour your obligations under your foreign exchange contracts. Your funds are then available to pursue new business opportunities.
In evaluating applications, we examine your company's managerial, technical and financial capabilities.
