How we help your business

Managing your foreign exposures

Tailored currency exchange and treasury management solutions for businesses, helping you to protect profits and expand your products and services internationally.

Reducing Risk, Driving Growth

Uncertainty has always been a constant contributor to currency market volatility, never more so than the last twelve months in which we have seen unprecedented levels of volatility. The disruptions from the Covid pandemic along with economic and political turbulence have caused considerable market fluctuations for sterling and across many currencies.

Many businesses use forward contracts to establish an FX strategy to mitigate the impact of currency market risk on margins and profits. The Hawk FX team have helped thousands of businesses protect themselves from the ravages of currency market volatility. Working closely with our clients, we take the pressure off sometimes overstretched treasury functions, helping them navigate past the pitfalls to help their business grow.

Risk Management

When establishing a Hedging Programme for your business, deciding when and how to use forward contracts, is much more than a simple mathematical equation. It is important to get a complete view of the factors at play - the big picture as well as your business needs, analysing the environment in which you operate as well as market factors. We help you manage risk in a way that truly works for your business.
