Tom is also asked to put in place a fx risk management policy in order to minimise losses due to fluctuations of exchange rates.
Tradista allows Tom to manage all his tasks in an intuitive way.
First, Tradista provides him with a report, updated in real time, with an accurate view of the currencies currently held in the company’s accounts.

Tradista also provides Tom with an exchange rate forecast tool to help in his forecasts.
With this, Tom controls his treasury, provides his boss with the requested reports and efficiently schedules currency buys and sellings for the company.
