Our approach

Every provider says they have a unique way of tackling the problems associated with foreign exchange risk – ultimately, they don’t. All providers (brokers and banks) have a very, very similar offering. The thing that sets Investec apart is the willingness for our dealer to take the time to really understand my business and our attitude towards risk. They proactively engage with us...without being pushy... which has resulted in a long-term, valued relationship.

How we help

  • The business imports a range of produce from a variety of countries, meaning there is a significant financial risk in terms of movements in the foreign exchange rate on the Company’s narrow margins.
  • Investec works with Barfoots to offer guidance on foreign exchange hedging and options that work within the business’ risk parameters.
