How to Free Up Working Capital

Posted by Sonal Mistry on 3/23/20 9:16 AM


Foreign currency exchange may be affecting your bottom line, but it doesn’t have to.

For Canadian import and export companies, fluctuations in exchange rates can make it challenging to budget up-front costs or determine revenues in foreign currencies. 

Sometimes you are also required to post collateral as payment assurance for your foreign exchange contract provider which locks up your free capital that you could be using to grow your business.

The Solution

Olympia has partnered with Export Development Canada (EDC) to bring the Foreign Exchange Guarantee (FXG) program to our clients to help protect your business from foreign currency exchange risk and free up working capital.

The benefits of working with Olympia & EDC

 Secure your exchange rate without putting up capital
 Protect your margins

 Cash protection
 FX certainty for up to 2 years with flexible terms

How it works

The FXG is a program provided to Olympia from EDC on your behalf in place of margin requirements, allowing you to free up capital that would otherwise be used to secure FX funds. All you have to do is contact your Account Manager, discuss your currency concerns and needs and let us coordinate your FXG requirements.
