FX and Trade Finance Advisory

data.image.file_name

"We make it our responsibility to ensure that your operating profit is not eroded by FX losses, while making the most of the market opportunities that come along."

Advisory is not merely confined to indicating what levels to buy or sell at. It is client specific and considers the big picture. It is the end-to-end management of the hedge book while staying within the confines of the client’s risk management framework.

We keep track of your underlying exposures and manage the hedge book dynamically.

Our clients have a single point of contact in our advisory team which is typically an advisor with over 10 years of treasury experience. The advisor tracks and manages the exposures, facilitates coverage (including assistance in negotiating with the bank) and maintains and shares updated MIS on a daily basis. In addition to the primary advisor, there is a back-up advisor too, so as to ensure seamless continuity in the absence of the primary advisor.

Our MIS dashboard gives a real time snapshot of the hedge performance to the senior management along with projected outcomes using scenario analysis and VaR (Value at Risk) if needed.

The advisor briefs the client daily on the latest market developments, major risk events ahead and likely impact on currencies and rates.

The client gets access to IFA’s daily and weekly research reports on major currencies.

IFA’s trade finance desk helps clients avail fund based as well non-fund-based trade finance facilities from banks on favorable terms. Fund based facilities include PCFC, PCINR, Post Shipment credit, Bill Discounting, LC Discounting, Factoring, Buyer’s credit and Supplier’s credit. Non-fund-based facilities include Letter of Credit, Letter of comfort/undertaking for availing Buyer’s/Supplier’s credit and Bank Guarantees. IFA scrutinizes charges such as LC issuance cost, Advisory cost, SWIFT charges, document handling charges, LC amendment charges etc. to ensure that they are not inappropriately levied.

IFA helps the client zero in on the most viable funding option under prevailing market conditions.

IFA assists clients in trade finance documentation to ensure that RBI and FEMA regulations pertaining to export and import are complied with.

Client Testimonials

Mr. Vijay Agarwal

- Chairman, Creative Textile Mills Pvt Ltd, Mumbai

We have been associated with IFA Global for 4 years now. I can only tell that they have taken away a lot of my burden from foreign exchange. Previously, whenever I used to do; half of my time would go into analysing whether the market will go up or down. Now I am free, these guys are taking care of it very well. Transparent, Honest and Hard Working, can’t get better than this.

Mr. Vanjinath

- Managing Director, Cotton Concepts Pvt Ltd , Coimbatore

I have been associated with IFA Global for few years and have got great service so far. I am filled with a lot of information which helps me in the industry. The team has been professional and helped me in every single bit to understand how the market works. Especially when we deal with our own business, we do not understand the nuances of how the forex market works. The team has really broken down every single thing that is required when it comes to how the market performs or how we could utilise the benefits of forex in our business.

Right from bringing down my bank interest rates to negotiating with banks in terms of all conversions & rates; everywhere they have given me benefits in business. And, that is where I see them add value. I would recommend IFA Global for all their support.

Mr. Senthil Kumar

- Chairman, BKS Textiles Pvt Ltd, Coimbatore

Since the last few years, frankly speaking we have forgotten what we are supposed to do about our foreign currency transactions. We have left everything to IFA Global. We are comfortable and can devote our time to other things. We also feel by large we have made reasonable profits on FX transactions. Service wise, it has been a very good experience. Without asking, we have received the right advice at the right time so that we can remain in our business as competitive as we can. Happy with their services and would like to add & avail more services like Treasury Audit etc.
