Clear Treasury-1

We support start-ups

Clear Treasury work with you to define your risk profile based on the currencies you transact in and then devise bespoke hedging strategies that help you know when and how much currency to buy using spot and forward contracts, options and structured products. This approach helps control your exposure to volatile exchange rates and adds long-term security and value to your business.

Start-up companies do not have established banking relationships. So when receiving GBP investment, banks are your only option to receive funds back to your EUR bank account. These bank costs for this transaction can range from 0.5-2.0%. Clear Treasury allows you to take control of that GBP to EUR transfer. You can book a rate at your time of choosing. Providing a comparable alternative to your bank rate.

Clear Treasury offers both a seamless banking payments platform whilst offering a dedicated account manager to help steer you through the uncertainties of the FX markets.

If you would like to discuss your FX options with an expert, please fill out the form and the Clear Treasury team will be delighted to help you.
