FX in business: Why having a reliable foreign exchange provider matters when expanding internationally

Expanding your business internationally can be an exhilarating yet challenging venture. However, with the right foreign exchange partner, you can navigate these challenges with ease and set your business up for international success. In this blog, we will explore why having a reliable FX partner is crucial for expanding businesses, how to identify an FX provider that suits your organization, and how partnering with a dedicated FX service like OFX can accelerate your business expansion.

The need for an FX partner in business

As your business expands, many functions are moved internationally. This could mean you need to pay foreign suppliers in their currency, your organization is purchasing products overseas, or you are receiving payments in foreign currencies. No matter which of these scenarios, or countless other foreign exchange situations, applies to your business, a reliable foreign exchange partner is essential for maintained expansion. By working with a forex partner like OFX, your business can not only save money through better rates but also benefit from hedging tools, global currency accounts, and leveraging the expertise of our OFXperts who help you navigate the world of foreign exchange.

Expanding businesses finding success with OFX

One business that found success working with OFX, is Danco Forage, a livestock and equine forage business, whose founder, Dan Pandolfo, recognized the importance of partnering with OFX as his business began to grow.

Pandolfo enlisted the expertise of OFX and started working with his dedicated OFXpert, Jeff in 2015. Through their partnership, Pandolfo gained customized support from Jeff after he took the time to understand Danco Forage’s business and Pandolfo’s needs. Pandolfo shares, “With Jeff’s help, I have come to understand market volatility and prepare my business for currency fluctuations.” Assisted by the expertise of his OFXpert, Pandolfo was able to navigate the uncertainties of the foreign exchange market better than ever before. 

The success story of Danco Forage is not unique. Many businesses, like Pandolfo’s, have realized the crucial role a trusted foreign exchange expert provides when expanding a business globally.
