Custom House Announces Foreign Exchange Webinar Series on Emerging Markets in Asia Pacific

New webinar series will provide Australian and New Zealand companies a real understanding of the impact Foreign Exchange has on business success

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2007) - Custom House, one of the largest non-bank foreign exchange (FX) companies in the world, is proud to announce the introduction of its FX Educational Webinar Series in Australia and New Zealand with two new sessions including, "Understanding Risk Management" and "Dealing with Exotic Currencies".

Doing business overseas has become commonplace for most corporate organisations. Increasingly more companies are moving their operations or sourcing product from more exotic locales. Today, globalisation is providing a new dynamic for companies conducting daily business transactions in global markets with new opportunities to manage risks with fluctuating emerging market currencies.

"Understanding the different aspects of Foreign Exchange is vital in today's globalised economy," said Mark Frey, Head Foreign Exchange Trader for Custom House. "Business leaders can see the constant changes in their local and US currencies, and want and need, to better understand the calculated strategies they can take to minimise their exposure to risk and unexpected market conditions. The goal of our FX webinar series is to provide information on an often complicated subject matter and help individuals navigate their way through the world of foreign currencies."

Topics covered in the "Understanding Risk Management" webinar include outlining how currency exposure can threaten your profits and how hedging alternatives can offer protection. While the "Dealing with Exotic Currencies" webinar offers specific strategies including currency restrictions and fixed exchange rates. Featuring Mark Frey, Head Foreign Exchange Trader for Custom House, and Tobias Davis, Corporate Risk Manager for Custom House, both webinars will aim to help businesses discover how they can receive fair value on all of their international payment transactions and maximise the benefits of using a total range of FX services.
