    Brexit: How to protect against currency fluctuations

    by Anton Van Teylingen | Mar 13, 2019
    For businesses involved with imports or exports, or who often deal in foreign currency settlement, exchange rate fluctuations can have a big impact on business. Those involved in Pound transfers have likely seen Brexit increasing their currency risk. For SMEs, exchange rate volatility can be dangerous. One strategy to protect businesses against fluctuations and secure their cash flow is currency hedging.

    Britain - a good time to invest? Make use of your 2018 investment allowance

    by Andrew Rissik | Nov 14, 2018
    South Africans are, by now, well familiar with the concept that when there is uncertainty in a country the local currency devalues and becomes volatile. Nowhere is this truer than in the UK as it nears the looming Brexit deadline. But, when a currency is under pressure, it presents fantastic buying opportunities to investors using foreign currency.

    But, do you know your forex broker’s name?

    by Saskia Johnston | Oct 10, 2018
    Fintech, market disruptors, cryptocurrency - all key words used in my industry to describe some of the ways technology has changed and moulded our industry over the last few years. Now, while I, myself am a millennial and completely value and appreciate technology and the role it has to play in all our industries, I value the worth of a person more. I prefer doing business with a human. Someone who understands my objections and goals with a particular purchase or transaction in mind.

    Uncertainty is here to stay, so how do you roll with the punches?

    by Gary Kockott | Nov 24, 2017
    The one thing about South Africans is that we sure know how to take a punch, and boy have we had to suck up a lot of damage these past two years. The unpredictability and extreme volatility of the Rand has left local investors punch drunk and unable to figure out what their next move should be. In order to preserve or grow wealth as a South African, it’s becoming increasingly important to look abroad to ensure you aren’t held at the mercy of the Rand. But where do you start?

    Can the Rand make a comeback? Or is it too late?

    by Andrew Rissik | Oct 20, 2017
    The Rand is in a state, and I think it will continue to devalue as long as the chaotic economic policy framework and populist rhetoric in the Republic fails to attract long-term “sticky” capital.

    Scam warning! Australian importers beware

    by Tim Smith | Oct 18, 2017
    Personally, I don't entertain cold calls. How can you tell the genuine from the fake? Especially when the fake are often good at sounding genuine. This makes it tough in an industry like foreign exchange brokerage, where most of my competitors can ring dozens of businesses they've found on Google before I've taken my first sip of drink at a networking event. Perhaps I'm old school, but I do like to know who I'm dealing with.
