Reduce costs and manage risk more effectively
We help thousands of companies in over 100 different industry sectors do exactly that…
We work in partnership with you to significantly reduce your foreign exchange costs and effectively manage your risk.
Foreign exchange is all we do. With lower overheads, we take advantage of lower operating costs than the banks to give you access to free international payments, better exchange rates, same day delivery of funds and a choice of transaction options.
A tailored proactive service
Highly tailored to your individual business requirements, simple, fast and cost-effective.
We spend the time and effort to understand your needs and how exchange rate fluctuations affect your business. With each of our dealers servicing fewer clients than a bank, we provide a level of proactivity and personal service that the established banks find too resource intensive.
We can therefore react rapidly to changes in market conditions and are more effective at communicating relevant market moves and economic factors which could impact your business’ foreign exchange transactions.
Access to over 800 currency pairs and a range of transaction options
Your personal dealer will be an experienced market professional who can discuss and execute a range of alternative transaction options. In addition to spot and forward contracts, HiFX offers clients the facility to buy or sell foreign exchange at pre-determined prices. Market orders are monitored around the clock and our experts will help you establish the appropriate levels at which to place them.
We act on your recorded verbal instructions, given over the phone for your security and peace of mind.
