September 23 | 4:00 PM – 4:45 PM

Is your business trading internationally? Are you selling in one country and subsequently needing the money in another country? Every day, 6.6 trillion is traded internationally in foreign currencies and we all play our part in it. We are thrilled to have Axel van Drongelen from Hoef Consult take us on a tour through the fascinating landscape of the foreign exchange markets. This is a webinar you should not miss!

Axel will explain how international payments work for business and personal transactions. He will talk about how the advertised transparency for currency exchanges can be very deceptive and speak about the reality of hidden costs. In this webinar, he will give examples of foreign exchanges through international banks and independent payment providers.

Attending the webinar will further build your knowledge of foreign exchange, while enabling you to save substantial sums of money in business and personal transactions. A great ROI on your time spent!
