INTL FCStone Ltd’s Global Payments Division will leverage its unmatched experience in emerging markets and unique knowledge of regulatory, economic, and socio-political conditions across Africa to share its insights with Africa Works!
Transacting payments in local African currencies presents unique challenges, while at the same time business in the region is growing immensely. Companies that can navigate the local market conditions, as well as the cross-border payments and foreign exchange landscape, can take advantage of substantial opportunities on the continent. Africa is a hotbed of activity for business and finance, as well as humanitarian aid and economic development. International organizations engaged in these various activities share the common need to efficiently and securely transact payments in local currency.
INTL FCStone Ltd’s Global Payments Division will leverage its unmatched experience in emerging markets and unique knowledge of regulatory, economic, and socio-political conditions across Africa to share its insights with Africa Works! attendees on overcoming the challenges of managing payments and foreign exchange in exotic markets, with a specific focus on African nations. This session will provide comprehensive information about managing treasury operations in countries with complex economic or socio-political conditions, foreign exchange challenges and solutions, the benefits of making payments in local currency rather than hard currency, and more.
