The second part in our guide to making the most of your foreign exchange payments.

Companies aren’t tied to their banks anymore and the reason is simple: specialisation and cost. The leading specialist foreign exchange (FX) companies on the market are pretty much a new phenomenon in the world of international trade, most being only a generation in the making.

They tend to be 100% focused on foreign exchange, offer their clients more attention than the banks, and comply with international regulatory authorities to a ‘T’ because all they do is foreign exchange.

Foreign exchange is the biggest business in the world with the big banks speculating on close to a trillion pounds every single day.

The largest specialty foreign exchange firms such as Custom House, Travelex and Ruesch move billions of pounds around the world annually, but these are real transactions as opposed to the speculative leverage that dominates the interbank foreign exchange market.

The incursion by non-bank specialists has really taken off in the last few years, helped by the launch of online foreign exchange trading such as Custom House’s Multiple Payment Platform.

These companies have global treasury operations and offer advantages to companies that are major exporters to Europe, Asia, the United States and other world markets. They handle billions of euros, pounds and dollars that they need to exchange. In turn, companies elsewhere in the world that import from America, for example, need those dollars to pay their bills.

Continuing on from last week, we look at some more of the services – tricks of the trade – that an experienced specialty foreign exchange provider will deliver.

If you’re relying on your local bank for assistance doing business in other countries, you may be getting short-changed. That’s because you’re not getting the kind of innovative, flexible currency solutions that foreign exchange specialists can offer.

As UK businesses increasingly go global, they’re frequently dealing in multiple currencies. And the success of any venture can often rest on getting the most favourable foreign exchange transaction rate.

That’s where specialist foreign exchange companies come in. Through lower overheads and fewer branch offices than their banking competitors, savings in exchange rates are able to be passed directly onto the customer.

As experts, they know that when it comes to foreign exchange, speed, timing and efficiency are the keys to success.

They will customise a service that exactly meets the client company’s needs and integrates seamlessly with their current business practices.

Good FX specialty providers are trusted by business leaders and Fortune 500 companies because they can provide secure, award-winning foreign exchange services globally.

The best of them enable clients to transact billions of pounds annually, on-line and through their international networks of trading offices.

‘The large banks are very good at providing foreign exchange to the large corporations that need to exchange millions of dollars, but when it comes to mid-size or small corporations then they are more challenged,’ according to Peter Gustavson, founder and chief executive officer of Custom House.
