Custom House Announces Latest Foreign Exchange Webinar Series on Emerging Markets

New webinar series will look at the risks and opportunities of working with emerging market currencies for Canadian companies

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 16, 2007) - Custom House Ltd., one of the largest non-bank foreign exchange (FX) companies in the world, is proud to announce the newest addition to its FX Educational Webinar Series in Canada entitled, "Navigating Global Foreign Exchange in Emerging Markets".

Doing business overseas has become commonplace for most corporate organizations. Increasingly more companies are moving their operations or sourcing product from more exotic locales. Today, globalization 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.

"Emerging market currencies is a popular subject in today's globalized economy. The Canadian dollar is trading at a record high over the past month. Our Canadian customers are concerned about how the high value will stack against emerging currencies and what strategies they can use to minimize their exposure to unexpected global market conditions," said Mark Frey, Head Foreign Exchange Trader for Custom House. "Our new webinar series will answer questions related to working with emerging market currencies and offer specific strategies including currency restrictions and fixed exchange rates. 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 webinar will include currency restrictions and regulations, rate of execution, liquidity risks, currency restrictions, non-deliverable forwards, and a discussion on the Chinese Yuan and its implications against the US economy. Featuring Mark Frey, Head Foreign Exchange Trader for Custom House, and Cheryl Girling, Business Development Manager for Custom House, the webinar will help businesses discover how they can receive fair value on all of their international payment transactions and maximize the benefits of using a number of emerging market currencies.
