So far, 2015 has been the year of currency volatility, as predicted by many analysts. In the first half of the year, the Dollar strengthened, the Swiss Franc experienced wild appreciation in January and the Greek Crisis closed with a cliff-hanger. The second half has proven to be equally uncertain with the onshore Chinese Yuan spiralling down in early August, experiencing its biggest one-day loss in two decades. This sent the Singapore Dollar and other Asian Currencies including Korean Won, Thai Baht and the Philippine Peso to multiyear lows. The looming interest rates hike in US, anticipated for Q4 2015, will result in greater volatility for the Dollar and subsequently, other currencies.
IE has partnered Western Union Business Solutions to help you understand the currency outlook of the Singapore Dollar and the other major currencies that Singapore Businesses typically deal with. Also, find out about the key global events to look out for in the second half of 2015 that will have a significant impact to the foreign currency market. At the same time, learn how you can help your business derive a comprehensive plan to hedge and protect your bottom line against an uncertain currency market and effectively manage your business cash flow with technology.
