Chamber FX Virtual Drop-In Clinic

Date June 25, 2020 Location Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce
Chamber FX Virtual Drop-In Clinic

Due to demand and the ever-changing global economic climate, we will be running a foreign exchange virtual drop-in clinic every month with our partners MoneyCorp. The next clinic will take place on Thursday, 25th June and 1 hour slots can be booked by clicking here.

Ordinarily trading abroad offers lucrative opportunities and some commentators suggest that companies who trade internationally are 30 percent more productive, more profitable and offer more job growth than businesses who focus solely on the domestic market. However, the changeable global economy, in particular the volatility in foreign exchange, brings increased risks for SMEs.

Currently, the entire world is ramping up efforts to control Coronavirus, and while the toll on people’s lives is tragic and immeasurable, there is also huge economic uncertainty. If you buy or sell goods and services from companies based abroad, then your cash flow and revenue may be impacted by Covid-19, as it is having a profound effect on the markets that has never been seen before, causing currency volatility.

Fluctuating currency values means costs from overseas don’t remain static and revenue can’t be guaranteed. This uncertainty generates a measure of risk, which makes it difficult to generate accurate forecasts and puts pressure on the bottom line.

FX Update – May 2020 

Since the start of the lockdown, in early March, when we saw large swings on the FX market, sterling dropping from around $1.32 to $1.14 and €1.21 to €1.05, the markets have been a little calmer over the last month with the following approximate ranges:

GBPUSD – high $1.2640 – low $1.2160

GBPEUR – high € 1.1530 – low €1.1260
