Webinar: How FX volatility can hurt - or help - your business!

Webinar How FX volatility can hurt - or help - your business!

So far in 2019, we've seen another year of uncertainty with the AUDUSD falling sharply as trade wars, a global economic slowdown and local interest rate cuts hit the local currency.

The historical average range in the AUDUSD, since 1983, is 19% (source: Reuters). Regardless of what's happening in markets, the AUD usually sees large swings over the course of a year.

For businesses, FX volatility is yet another risk that needs to be managed. How can you protect your business from FX volatility? Can FX volatility be beneficial?

This webinar will look at how businesses are impacted by FX volatility and explore some simple ways to minimise the risk from foreign currency movements.

Date: Tuesday 15 October 2019
Time: 12pm to 1pm Australian Eastern Standard Time (Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra)

This webinar will also look at the big themes likely to drive the AUD as we head into 2020. We will also discuss the techniques that can help protect your businesses from FX volatility while potentially benefiting from favourable AUD moves.
