Protection from foreign exchange risks

In addition, we offer you access to its SG MARKETS digital platform that includes many pre and post trade services, including MyHedge. This service allows you to manage your FX risks and to check in live the hedging strategy’s efficiency according to various market move scenarios.

A firm grasp of payment circuits

This is essential for any business wishing to get the most from their international relationships.

Our experts can help you increase your competitive edge in the following ways : whether you want to reduce the number of players involved, familiarise yourself with the regulations in effect, take advantage of competitive rates and management tools or simplify your processes, our experts are there to help you increase your competitive edge whilst guaranteeing dependable relationships with your financial partners worldwide.
