We offer the capability of same-day delivery on FX payments executed at the live market exchange rates in all major currency pairs across 220 territories globally.
We access multiple liquidity providers on each transaction which helps achieve the best possible exchange rate. Wire fees are covered at both the point of execution and delivery meaning that payments arrive in full and without hidden costs. Transactions are made using SWIFT payment technology, ensuring that once funds are cleared payments can be made the same working day.
Our mass payments technology streamlines the process of making multiple international payments that involve a broad range of currencies and destinations so that it’s no longer time-consuming.
All payments are set up through one simple file upload, consolidating the process from start to finish. The result is that top-tier global businesses can have their FX payments handled efficiently by our currency specialists, allowing them to remain focused on their own business objectives.
“Universal Partners are now my main port of call, and booking dollars is so simple, and all matters are dealt with quickly and efficiently. A truly 1st class service.”Mark Eacock, Director
Through our service providers, Universal Partners can organise banking anywhere in the world so that our clients don’t risk jeopardising relationships with their international client-base.
We mitigate the challenges of setting up overseas by opening Collection Accounts with multi-currency IBANS on behalf of clients that receive foreign currencies when selling their products or services. These named accounts are set up in any company name without the time-consuming bureaucracy that is typically involved. More efficient and cost-effective, Collection Accounts enable our clients’ customers to make payments in their own currency to a local bank account, creating a more seamless and trustworthy process.
Our custom-built online platform provides our clients with a modern and efficient tool that enables secure international payments to be managed effortlessly.
- Security assured: Fully encrypted and protected by two-factor authentication resulting in a robust platform that protects client funds and data.
- Full control: Gain access to FX markets, add beneficiaries and the capability to set up, execute and track payments.
- Reporting tools: View and export full transaction history and download PDF, Excel or CSV reports to assist with financial accounting requirements.
Currency market volatility creates extreme levels of uncertainty for businesses around the globe. Universal Partners specialise in building unique and detailed currency risk management strategies that are aligned with our clients’ business objectives and offer robust protection against market fluctuations.
After an initial consultation, our team of analysts and strategists begin creating an FX strategy designed to manage currency risk. At this stage it is important to determine a company’s tolerance to any potential market movements and their risk appetite so that the correct strategy can be implemented.
- Passive Hedging: Our Passive Hedging model allows businesses to greatly reduce the currency risk through fixing exchange rates for a set period. This time-efficient solution allows businesses a level of financial stability that is often unattainable when dealing in foreign currencies.
- Active Hedging: For a more agile and dynamic approach, Active Hedging offers businesses the opportunity to remove significant downside risk, whilst also allowing them to take advantage of any positive market movements.
- Please note our Foreign Exchange Services (incl. our Forward Contracts) are non-regulated activities and therefore, they are outside the scope of the PSRs 2017 and our API license with the FCA.
Once a risk management strategy is agreed, our experienced analysts monitor the markets closely to identify the optimum moment for market entry. A dedicated account manager will be the central point of contact throughout the agreed period, working alongside our strategists to ensure no opportunities are missed.
Our currency hedging solutions are individually designed for each client so for more information on how we can help your business please call +44 (0) 207 190 9559 or email us at email@example.com.
