3 tools that will help you reduce exchange rate volatility

Running a business that is exposed to the foreign exchange market means you’ll always be subject to foreign exchange rate risk. Throughout each week, the value of different currencies is always in flux—from hour to hour and from day to day. Foreign currencies can fluctuate in value because of inflation, unemployment, or election results. Volatility can also be triggered by other news or global events like weather or the pandemic.

When currency rates move in your favor, you reap the benefits and you’re happy. But when they move against you, they shrink your profit margin. Depending on how narrow your profit margin is to begin with, moving rates can erode much of your profits to the point of creating a loss. Even if you are comfortable with more risk, with today’s volatility, a negative move can have a significant adverse effect on your business.

Therefore, any time a company accepts or sends a payment in a foreign currency, there is a risk of the exchange rate changing before the transaction is complete. If the rate moves against you, the transaction will cost more and have a big impact on your bottom line.
