Global Payments: Beyond the G10

Greg Leven and Thiago Vieira, Intl FCStone

Making global payments doesn’t have to be a headache. In this session attendees will learn about contracting for local currency competitive bidding, changing local currency regulations, just in time funding, reducing correspondents, and trade execution systems. Most corporations and financial institutions send USD overseas to be converted locally at the bank in the foreign country. This can be
detrimental to obtaining the most efficient process possible because you have become a captive client and received the “rate of the day” from the local bank. Additionally if the current payment provider doesn’t have direct relationships with financial institutions in the particular country that you are sending funds to, it can lead to delays and lost funds. This session will pull back the curtain and provide transparency on what truly happens behind the scenes after you click “send”. The session is neutral and
designed for both banks that are looking to expand their currency offering and generate more revenue
for the bank AND for the corporations that want direct access to the currency markets. We will discuss difficult currencies to deliver such as Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Myanmar, Africa, SE Asia, and the Middle
East. In depth examples of real life situations typically cause corporations and banks to raise questions throughout the presentation. This is especially true when the attendees have had problems in the past with the currencies we discuss.
