What are currency risk factors?

Foreign Currency Risks Exposure

A high percentage of companies do not have a strategic plan to identify and mitigate foreign currency risk in their global payments process and this exposure can have a direct impact on your company’s bottom line.

Geopolitical and Economic Events

These events can make global financial market conditions volatile and create the need for a proactive and strategic approach to managing currency market risks.

Unpredictable Currency Swings

Daily swings of one or two percent in major currencies are common, while three to five percent moves on a monthly basis are likely. Market fluctuations in exotic and emerging market currencies are even higher. Your company can no longer expect to do business internationally and not see an FX risk to its profitability.
