The Challenges of FX Hedging

Whether your corporation is just beginning to develop a strategy or you have been managing a very complex and manual process for years, you no longer have to face your challenges alone.

AtlasFX understands your business because we have been in your shoes.  Leveraging over a century of combined FX risk management expertise, we have developed a comprehensive FX risk management solution.

Global Expansion

Sales are expanding into new markets and your multi-currency exposure is growing. Standard ERP reports just don’t provide the complete picture.

Program Scalability

Recent growth has exposed the frailties in your FX program and the current strategy is no longer effective.

Technology Limitations

Current solutions do not provide support for the entire FX workflow. You cannot achieve 100% automation but can’t afford to switch providers.

Painful Month-End Close

The month-end process is very manual and very painful. Too much time is spent analyzing inaccurate and incomplete data and you are not able to understand large variances and inconsistencies.

Lack of Visibility

You simply don’t have the visibility to collect and validate transaction currency level exposures throughout the company.

Collaboration

Inability to quickly understand risks mean you cannot provide meaningful and timely reporting to upper management for strategic decision making.

Purpose-built to enhance the
entire FX risk management experience.
