AFEX works with international companies to design the individual tools and knowledge needed to manage their exposure to the risks offered by today’s volatile foreign exchange.
To achieve this purpose, AFEX offers risk management consultancy services suited to specific company’s needs. Each company's risk objectives are different. For example, a tour operator covering ground arrangement invoices for a number of different clients is likely to watch markets more closely and time the purchase of blocks of currency to coincide with spikes in their currency pair, and may also purchase on the spot market, hoping to realise a profit on exchange rates as well as their normal business activity. On the other hand, an exclusive industrial machine importer will secure a sales contract based on a number of variables including exchange rate to ensure a profitable deal. The company is then likely to secure exchange rates as soon as the order is placed, for tranche payments throughout the duration of the assembly and shipping period.
AFEX risk management consultancy services try to understand each company’s motivations and ensure that they achieve the most profitable outcome for their business.
