Online Roundtable: FX & Fundraising: Derisking Big Money Deals

Greenbackers recently hosted a roundtable with our partners at Corpay, focussing on the importance of managing foreign exchange risks. The replay video is now available. See below.

Have you considered the impact of the FX (foreign exchange) market volatility on your bottom line? Or the impact on your fundraise, should funds come from outside of your country?

Founders – did you know that a $1m USD investment in your business last September 2022 would have been worth £920k GBP then, but is only worth £820k today, June 2023? 

When currency market volatility increases, and in times of uncertainty, a regular and systematic review can be important and may save you money, particularly during a fundraise.

Greenbackers Investment Capital convened a roundtable session with industry experts Corpay, to help our entrepreneur and investor community to better understand and approach the challenges associated with processing cross-border payments and currency risk management. You can see the replay below.

Mark Hannigan (Greenbackers), Robert Hokin (Greenbackers), Joe Dunkley (Corpay), Charlie Parker (Corpay) discussed how profitability can be maximised when dealing with large overseas transactions on 28 June 2023.
