Partner Interview Series | XE the world’s trusted currency authority

15-09-2020 | treasuryXL | XE |

XE provides a comprehensive range of currency services and products, including their Currency Converter, Market Analysis, Currency Data API and quick, easy, secure Money Transfers for individuals and businesses. They leverage technology to deliver these services through their website, mobile apps and over the phone.

We will take a deeper dive into the market, XE businesses and the future of FX.

AN INTRODUCTION TO

Wybe Schutte is head of Business Development Europe at XE.com. Wybe’s career has always centered around international business development and managing relationships. Within XE.com both play an important part as globally we XE is the trusted partner of many business in helping them manage & mitigate the risk that is associated with dealing with multiple currencies, be this through simple rate regulation or looking at high level currency risk management & hedging solutions.

We asked him 10 questions. Let’s go!

 

INTERVIEW

1.Can you tell something about XE and its mission?

At Xe, we live currencies. Most people know Xe from the currency converter, however we also provide international money transfer services for business for over 25 years.  Xe’s Business Solutions supports company’s that have an exposure to foreign currency, supporting them to safeguard profit margins and improve cashflow through quantifying the FX risk they face and implementing strategies to mitigate it. So that our clients can focus on their core business and do not have to worry about their FX.

2.What kind of FX risk types exists and how does XE deal with it?

We look within each business to see where the currency risks are, and whether these can be offset. For example, any sales made in Euros could be offset against Euro costs. If there is still an exposure this is where products such as Forward Contracts can be considered in order to provide protection against the risk. Currency risk can be divided into three types: Transactional Risk, when a business deals in a country that differs to their base currency; Transnational Risk, when a business has an asset or liability overseas on their balance sheet, and Economic Risk where a movement in the exchange rate can give a business a competitive advantage when competing for a particular market.

3.How can you measure the different types of FX risk?

FX Risk can either have a negative or positive impact on a business’ bottom line. If you look back over the last 10 years you can understand what the potential impact could be in the most extreme, least extreme and average scenarios over your given timeline.

This can be done by looking at the high & low points of the market and a business’ FX exposure. This step helps companies to understand what the impact of the net exposure can have on the bottom line.

4.What are the most common critical FX problems that businesses have?

Businesses that have a transactional exposure to the currency markets can differentiate between committed and forecasted exposures. A committed exposure is when the price for a good or service in a foreign currency is known and contracted. Therefore, any movement in exchange rate has a direct impact on their profit or cost unless hedged. A forecasted exposure is when a business looks to the period beyond the committed period to see what their requirements may be. Confidence levels into forecasted periods can vary largely and it is normally the case that the further out a business forecasts, the lower the confidence levels.

5. How can businesses protect their bottom line against the currency markets?

There are a number of key stages that a business can look to follow in order to mitigate FX volatility. Firstly, Identify the type of risk, quantify the risk elements, and then look to build a strategy and agree the implementation process. These stages will allow you to decide the products that are most suitable, so you can then move to market timing and execution. Lastly, you should look to review, revise and adjust your approach on a regular basis. It is important to remember that it is not about market speculation but about mitigating your risk.

6.What is, in your perception, the biggest benefit of a working Foreign Exchange strategy?

Given the ever-uncertain world in which we currently live in, finance departments and treasury centres could be looking to build a strategy to deal with currency fluctuations, which over time could have a considerable impact on your company’s bottom line. A structured approach to foreign exchange risk can enable your business to make strategic planning decisions, rather than attempting to respond to day-to-day developments in the market.

7. Do you experience differences in FX before COVID19 and the time we live in now? What are the differences?

There has been significant movements in the currency markets during the Covid19 period and there are still many factors that influence the daily rates. During these uncertain times our clients are looking for certainty and stability. And although price is always important, other key factors like security and credibility became more important. Naturally each of our clients has been impacted very differently and we have worked with them to provide the solutions and flexibility they needed. We have welcomed many new clients from new geographies? as they were growing, and we supported existing clients that were growing or adapting their business models to suit the changing market.

8.The market is always changing, how does XE stay top of mind of the latest developments in the currency world?

We work closely with our clients to continuously understand their needs and adjust accordingly. Our expert Dealers keep a close eye out on the market. Understanding the movements, resistance levels, and key economic & political updates that can influence the market so that our clients do not have to worry about that. Xe also works closely with our sister companies and parent company Euronet Worldwide.

9.How does the future of FX look like in your perspective?

The near future could be set to weather extraordinary levels of balance sheet expansion and recession, potentially leading to a longer stimulative/expansionary monetary policy which could in turn depress currency rates of the countries that bear them. Near to medium term impacts of this could include a lack of major economic expansion as capital returns are often negative when factoring inflation. This may mean that we see a re-composition of FX strength toward commodity-based currencies (CAD/AUD/NZD) and alternative safe havens (CHF). However, we could see this shift in the longer term as public debt, in particular, becomes more tenable and attractive at such low interest rates and could invite broader investment for countries and to a degree private industry.

We have witnessed ample FX market volatility from an increased reliance on a more narrow data core. Inflation and interest rates and also public debt and balance sheet expansion narratives are having the most impact on rate movements. With this in mind; where much of the corrective forces required are formed around policies related to these key issues, it appears that volatility could behere to stay for at least the coming 6-12 months and beyond.

10.How does the future of FX look like in your perspective?

Supporting a scale-up with their complex FX requirements and enable them to grow their business in a short period of time by eliminating the FX risk and provide significant costs savings along the way.

Raising capital with the right information

14-09-2020 | by Rowan Hermes | Ilfa | SmartFunding

Raising funds is difficult, especially in these uncertain times. In this blog we explain why the right information and good help could aid entrepreneurs.

Blog is in Dutch language:

Economische onzekerheid is voor nagenoeg elk bedrijf een slechte zaak. Om voorbereid te zijn op de uitdagingen van de komende tijd is toegang tot voldoende werkkapitaal heel belangrijk. Kapitaal ophalen is echter niet zo makkelijk als het op het eerste gezicht lijkt. Er zijn heel veel soorten financiering, van de bekende bancaire lening tot de minder gebruikelijke factoring. Daarnaast heb je soms aan één financieringsvorm niet voldoende en moet je een combinatie maken. Welke financieringsvorm of combinatie het beste bij jouw onderneming past is afhankelijk van veel factoren. Er is dus niet snel een eenduidig antwoord te vinden op de vraag waar jij werkkapitaal vandaan kunt halen.

De juiste informatie

Kapitaal ophalen is een proces met veel stappen.  Om tijdens dit proces goede keuzes te kunnen maken heb je goede informatie nodig. Informatie kun je onder andere ophalen op:

1.Websites van aanbieders

Financiers verschaffen op hun websites informatie over hun producten. Bedenk wel dat dit commerciële informatie is en vooral geschikt is om verschillende financiers onderling te vergelijken.

2. Evenementen

Ook op evenement delen financiers hun informatie. Ook dit heeft vaak een commerciële inslag, maar op een evenement is direct contact met financiers mogelijk.

3. Blogpagina’s

Via blogs kun je veel leren over de verschillende soorten financieringen.

4. Websites van de KvK en RVO

Deze websites zijn gericht op ondernemers en zijn een goede bron voor educatieve informatie.

De juiste ondersteuning

Zelfs als je alle juiste informatie weet te vinden, blijft het maken van de beste keuze een uitdaging. Het inschakelen van een adviseur kan een uitkomst zijn. SmartFunding is in staat om ondernemers tijdens het hele proces van vraag naar financiering te ondersteunen. Waar nodig staan onze adviseurs je bij: van het opzetten van een businessplan tot het zoeken naar financiers en het bepalen van de beste financier voor het project. Ook na de financiering bieden wij ondersteuning aan de ondernemer waar nodig. Kortom, gedurende het gehele proces staan wij ondernemers bij.

Voor advies of vragen kun je altijd contact opnemen met SmartFunding via +31 85 303 56 65 of info@smartfunding.nl. Uiteraard kun je ook altijd direct contact opnemen met een van de SmartFunding-adviseurs.

Partner Interview Series | A deeper dive with Paul Simpson from Kyriba

01-09-2020 | treasuryXL | Kyriba |

In the upcoming weeks, you will get inspired by the treasuryXL partner interviews. Each interview will be different, the only thing we can recommend: Learn, Discover and Enjoy!

The first interview to start with is Kyriba where we will take a deeper dive into their recent hosted webinar about Mitigating Fraud With a Corporate Payment Hub.

AN INTRODUCTION TO

 

Paul Simpson is Strategic Payments Director at Kyriba who also was one of the presenters during the webinar in July.

We asked him 9 questions and 3 bonus questions. Let’s go!


INTERVIEW

1. Can you tell us about the Corporate Payment Hub and your specific role?

My role is to promote the Kyriba Payment Hub, to make customers and prospects aware that we also have a powerful payment module. Often people think of Kyriba for TMS, but we have far more to offer, for example an anti-fraud solution in addition to payments. As part of my role at Kyriba, I look at the constantly changing payment landscape to inform treasurers and finance teams of these changes, whether that’s regulatory or technological. The Kyriba Payments Hub detangles what I call the “ERP payment spaghetti”, streamlines global bank connectivity and format transformation, whilst providing companies with real-time fraud detection. This can also accelerate ERP cloud migration projects.

2. What is the core issue the Corporate Payment Hub aims to address and how does it differentiate it from the other players in the market?

Essentially a payment hub gives our clients a single, consolidated point of access across bank accounts, giving the ability to set up payments, define different payment types and provide notification of pending approvals. Kyriba provides this visibility by consolidating payment streams from different systems – ERPs, finance, treasury, legal, capital markets and decentralised teams, thus transforming dis-aggregated processes into a single source of record for all outgoing payments, all done with built-in fraud detection. We also, uniquely, support and maintain a “bank” of over 45,000 bank formats in-house via our bank formats team. This allows the payment hub to transform payment data into bank-specific file formats and connects directly with global banks via multiple protocols, including host-to-host, SWIFT and regional networks. Other providers build each bank format for each customer at a high cost and development time. The Kyriba payment hub is designed to work across different ERP solutions, whereas ERP systems will not work across other instances.

3. Can each ERP work with the Corporate Payment Hub also when you work with multiple ERP’s located in different countries?

Absolutely. The Kyriba payment hub is designed to work with multiple ERP systems across different countries.

4. What are the most common fraud scams that businesses are dealing with?

Fraudsters are trying to use the current crisis to their advantage. With people working from home, for example, they may attempt to ask finance to make payment to a new bank account – knowing the sign off process is not as robust as it was when teams were all together in the office.

5. What’s the difference in Fraud Scams before COVID19 and the time we live in now?

We have research that shows the number of fraud scam attempts is up by nearly a 1,000 times since Coronavirus. The finance sign-off process for making payments are defragmented as people are working from home. This is where the Kyriba payment hub can bring standardised workflows, sign-off and approvals together to help eliminate fraud

6. What critical elements of Fraud are often overlooked by businesses?

Businesses fail to use AI and machine learning in addition to rule-based technology and processes to reduce fraud. This is a key component of the Kyriba Payment Hub

7. What has been the best experience of one of your customers working with the Corporate Payment Hub?

We are able to cut the time and cost of a customer migrating their ERP solutions to the cloud, as we can handle all the payment connectivity and formats etc “out the box”, thus saving the company many 100,000s of Euros, and 6 months or more in time, whilst also providing and standardising work flow sign off processes etc.

8. What is, in your perception, the biggest benefit of a working with the Corporate Payment Hub?

True, real-time visibility of all payments, from all systems, in one place with enhanced fraud protection and built in work flow.

9. What is your best fraud prevention advice for businesses?

Prevention is always better than cure! I always preach this. Always use combined workflow and AI / Machine learning technology together – the best of both worlds.

BONUS QUESTIONS

Have you ever experienced a fraud scam yourself? If yes, how did it impact you?

I have never experienced a fraud scam myself, the protection I had in place alerted me to a potential scam and I took action.

How are you defending yourself against payments fraud?

Every payment has to be checked via a rule and AI/Machine Learning process.

How does the future of fraud prevention look like in your perspective?

Fraudsters are getting more sophisticated, with only 6% of Corporates using machine learning/AI, they need to use the latest technology or be left behind and suffer fraud.

Cash Management Scrum, an initiative that helps businesses preparing for the ‘new normal’

24-08-2020 | Ilfa | Hogeschool Utrecht |

Our Partners Ilfa and the Hogeschool Utrecht have created the Cash Management Scrum, an initiative that helps businesses preparing for the ‘new normal’. The Cash Management Scrum creates the space to do business effectively. Simple, with the resources you already have. With the Cash Management Scrum you will immediately gain more insight into your cash management. With the Cash Management Scrum you will be fully in control again.

Free of charge and corona proof. Read more….

Blog continues in Dutch language.

Wat gaan we doen?

We zorgen voor een optimale, vroegtijdige herkenning van veranderingen die vitaal zijn voor je organisatie. Daar kunnen we vervolgens direct en doeltreffend op reageren. Zo krijgt je cashmanagement een stevige impuls en kun je uit elke situatie het maximale voordeel halen. Die early warning functie is het resultaat van efficiënte liquiditeitsanalyses die we doorlopend toetsen aan een aantal meer en minder waarschijnlijke toekomstscenario’s, bijvoorbeeld een tweede lockdown.

Waarom zou je meedoen?

Door de coronacrisis kampen bedrijven met een scala aan problemen. Die variëren van een tekort aan liquiditeit tot het financieren van sterk toegenomen verkoop. Vooral de lockdownmaatregelen hebben zwaktes blootgelegd in bedrijfsmodellen die jarenlang goed gefunctioneerd hebben. Beter en sneller inzicht in kasstromen en de gevolgen voor je bedrijf, dat is nu nodig. De tools bestaan, maar nu de implementatie nog. En daar komt ons project Cashmanagement Scrum om de hoek kijken.

Wie jarig is trakteert!

Uitgerekend in dit turbulente jaar bestaat Ilfa 25 jaar. Maar misschien moest het wel zo zijn, want cashmanagement komt het best tot haar recht in tijden van onzekerheid. Wij willen onze verjaardag graag goed besteden. Daarom biedt Ilfa, samen met vierdejaarsstudenten van de Hogeschool Utrecht, deze gratis Cashmanagement Scrum aan. Want wie jarig is trakteert!

De studenten die meewerken aan de Cashmanagement Scrum worden begeleid door een docent met praktijkachtergrond en consultants van Ilfa. Alle studenten tekenen voor vertrouwelijkheid van de aangeleverde informatie.

Interesse in de Cashmanagement Scrum?

Ilfa en de studenten van de HU staan voor je klaar. Laat je gegevens achter en wij nemen contact met je op. Je kunt ook contact opnemen met Gerard van Baar (associate partner Ilfa) via gerard@ilfa.nl en 06 13 80 91 86 of met Irma Langeraert (managing partner Ilfa) via 06 54 25 22 50.

Active Liquidity Podcast – How AI Protects Payments During COVID19

| 17-08-2020 | treasuryXL | Kyriba |

Our Partner Kyriba has launched their podcast, in which the Chief Product Officer Thierry Truche shares his view on how AI (Artificial Intelligence) is essential as the third line of defense for finance chiefs, ensuring payments are protected during the COVID 19 pandemic. Even if you are a company that has strong fraud prevention processes in place, remote working conditions require AI to detect abnormal payments activity. Hear why Truche sees AI as a replacement for the collective intelligence that is more present in an office setting in this episode of the Activity Liquidity Podcast!

Press Release: Treasuryspecialist Ilfa en Hogeschool Utrecht ondersteunen bedrijven in coronatijd kosteloos met cashmanagement

05-08-2020 | Ilfa |

Utrecht/Roosendaal – 3 augustus 2020 – De Brabantse treasuryspecialist Ilfa start dit najaar in samenwerking met Instituut Finance & Accounting van de Hogeschool Utrecht een maatschappelijk project om bedrijven te helpen die door de coronacrisis grote veranderingen zien in hun cashflow. Het project is opgezet als een samenwerkingsverband tussen de specialisten van Ilfa en studenten en docent-onderzoekers van de Hogeschool Utrecht. Beiden verwachten bedrijven een concrete helpende hand te bieden en tegelijk de deelnemende studenten een bijzondere praktijkervaring mee te geven. Voor geïnteresseerde organisaties is het project kosteloos.

Zwaktes in bedrijfsmodellen

De lockdownmaatregelen als gevolg van de coronapandemie leggen zwaktes bloot in bedrijfsmodellen die jarenlang goed hebben gefunctioneerd. In onder meer de reisbranche, de horeca en de culturele sector noopt dat organisaties te zoeken naar nieuwe manieren om te overleven. Ook het tegenovergestelde gebeurt: bedrijven die door de coronacrisis de orders, boekingen en prijsaanvragen nauwelijks meer aankunnen. In beide gevallen heeft dat gevolgen voor het cashmanagement.

Het doel van het project is om bedrijven te helpen die veranderende werkelijkheid op te vangen en in hun bedrijfsmodel te verankeren. De opzet is sterk praktijkgericht, om per deelnemend bedrijf het cashmanagement een positieve impuls te geven. Ilfa stelt daarvoor haar praktijkervaring en cashmanagementsoftware beschikbaar, terwijl de HU zorgt voor handen aan de knoppen. Met als doel een optimale, vroegtijdige herkenning van – en reactie op – vitale veranderingen. Die early warning functie is het resultaat van efficiënte liquiditeitsanalyses die doorlopend worden getoetst aan een aantal meer en minder waarschijnlijke toekomstscenario’s.

Samenwerking Ilfa en Hogeschool Utrecht

Het initiatief van Ilfa komt niet alleen voort uit maatschappelijke betrokkenheid. Het bedrijf bestaat in dit roerige jaar precies een kwart eeuw en wil die mijlpaal op een gepaste manier vieren. De samenwerking met de Hogeschool Utrecht ligt daarbij voor de hand – niet alleen voor Ilfa. “Ilfa is al jaren verbonden aan onze hogeschool”, vertelt Hans Monpellier, directeur van het Instituut Finance & Accounting van de HU. “Elk jaar traint Ilfa belangeloos onze studenten in het gebruik van cashmanagementsoftware. Ook in ons onderzoek naar corporate governance geeft Ilfa ons adviezen die getuigen van een maatschappelijke betrokkenheid die nauw aansluit bij onze eigen visie.”

Aanmelden voor het project

Het project gaat begin september van start en heeft een looptijd van twee maanden. Voorwaarden zijn er op voorhand niet, behalve dan dat deelnemers wel substantiële kasstromen moeten hebben. Uit de aanmeldingen selecteren Ilfa en de hogeschool samen de deelnemers voor het project. Aanmelden kan tot 1 september aanstaande door een e-mail te sturen naar info@ilfa.nl of via cashmanagementscrum.ilfa.nl.

Over Ilfa

Ilfa is een Nederlandse organisatie die al 25 jaar bedrijven en instellingen, variërend van beursgenoteerd tot startup, ondersteunt bij de uitvoering van hun treasury. Ilfa’s treasury software is in eigen beheer ontwikkeld. Dataopslag en beheer voldoen aan de hoogste eisen.
