Why I'm Writing About Bank Exchange Rates

May 30, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 125

Foreign exchange is becoming an increasingly important part of doing business and over the last four years I have worked in and seen this industry explode. Bank exchange rates, forward contracts and options are now something that many Australian and International businesses deal with a day-to-day basis but still understand very little about.

I have over the last four years developed skills that I believe can not only be of assistance to business but can profoundly decrease the likelihood that they experience foreign exchange related business difficulties. Most importantly, understanding foreign exchange and how bank exchange rates are calculated can have an obvious impact on the bottom line. I know firsthand! In fact in a few cases, of course dependent on the size of the business, the saving could be anywhere up to 100K a year.

Apart from being able to help people with the knowledge I have, I'm also genuinely interested in foreign exchange markets, bank exchange rates and equities alike taking great interest in global events particularly those impacting on Europe and the Euro-zone right now. Business and individuals alike should take great interest in these topics as a precursor to running a successful business. When looking at the most successful businesses in the world, you look to their leaders who are clearly knowledgeable and street wise to whats going on around them and foreign exchange is no different.

There are too few websites dedicated to assisting business with their FX requirements with many of the banks taking the vast number of businesses purely through default as they run all their other financial products and loans through this conduit. What I have found is that the vast majority of businesses out there are satisfied with how their foreign exchange requirements are looked after, but really understand nothing of how exactly they are looked after, i.e the bank exchange rate they receive and how it is relevant to the official market rate. What products can greatly assist in reducing risk but also create certainty? There is a world out there that needs to be explored.

One of the key thing's to do for any business is be sure to understand as much as possible about how the foreign exchange market works and how the bank exchange rate is calculated, understanding these two things puts you way ahead of the rest. It also gives you bargaining power as the bank/foreign exchange provider will take more notice of your knowledge in the area.
