There are many forex providers but far fewer partners. Baumann Partners is an independent consultancy for businesses looking to review their approach to managing foreign exchange risk, as well as any new or existing counterparties. So, whether you work exclusively with your bank or wish to review current or new relationships, we are an impartial resource.
Whether you are frustrated with the unpredictability of FX markets, and the subsequent impact on the business, or worried by brokers ‘calling the market' and encouraging longer and larger hedge positions; we deliver bespoke hedging solutions and support in implementing them with the right counterparty.
Having access to adequate hedging facilities is equally as important as deciding how to hedge. Whether you are hedging significant projects or part of your forecasts, you might be concerned by the implications of cash being tied up through deposits, variation margin or margin calls.
Unless you read the small print you might not know what your current credit terms are even now, which will only leave you to find out the hard way.
We seek to source the best facility terms possible for our clients, as well as clearly explaining any implications and costs associated. Meaning you can save time whilst avoiding multiple sales processes with forex brokers.
Most third-party providers are now FCA regulated and have adequate licensing to hold client funds, but what should you know beyond that? Our aim is to help clients better understand their obligations and risks with any one counterparty in both best, and worst, case scenarios.
Beyond the ‘introductory pricing’ offered by brokers, there is little to no transparency around the cost of spot or forward trades. Ensuring each trade is priced fairly might feel like a full time job in itself.
We ensure that each trade, large or small, is competitively priced, saving you the need to switch counterparties yet again. This includes close outs of existing or historical trades.
