How to successfully trade and do business with the US

This 1-hour webinar covers how to send goods to the US, how to do business there and how to manage fluctuations in the values of the pound and US dollar.

The US is the UK's largest export market by country and with negotiations ongoing for a free trade agreement, there may well be many more opportunities for British firms to sell goods and services over the Atlantic.

More than two-thirds (67%) of those with FX requirements say they have been adversely impacted by currency volatility in the past year. Bibby Financial Services Trading Places Report 2017

Manage risk

We can help you to minimise the risk of currency fluctuations by locking in forward contracts. This means that you can fix the rate now for trades you may make in the future. 

And we have the expertise to look after all of your currency exchange needs from paying salaries and suppliers to receiving currency from overseas. We have two forward contract options that give you complete control and flexibility for your future currency requirements.


  • Allows you to lock-in a guaranteed exchange rate for settlement on a pre-determined future date
  • Funds are only provided when the exchange takes place
  • Converted funds can be used to make multiple payments


  • A guaranteed exchange rate that is set for an agreed period of time
  • Draw down at any time from the start of the window period until the contract expiry date
  • Funds are only provided when the draw down takes place
