INTL FCStone & NABC form Strategic Partnership

Published on: 25-Oct-2017

Initiatives enacted through the strategic partnership will include events, trade missions, workshops and thought leadership activities.  INTL FCStone will play an active role at the NABC Ambassadors Dinner taking place on 24 November, 2017 in Utrecht, Netherlands. Additionally, INTL FCStone will leverage its strong relationships in Africa to enhance NABC trade missions to and from the continent. The two organizations will organize “Business Bash” workshops throughout 2018 that will educate audiences on all aspects of conducting business in Africa, with INTL FCStone sharing its unique insights on how to mitigate associated financial risks. Furthermore, all NABC members will enjoy complimentary access to the INTL FCStone Global Payments Network which is regularly updated with pertinent risk management and market intelligence data. Finally, INTL FCStone will co-host a high-level networking event in 2018 in close co-operation with the NABC and its community.

Irene Visser, Managing Director at NABC comments: “Managing foreign exchange risks are an important aspect for Dutch SMEs with an international focus, and our new strategic partner INTL FCStone will be able to share their knowledge on this subject with our diversified and engaged community through events, trade missions, workshops, and the INTL FCStone Global Payments Network Dashboard. This will benefit all NABC Members that are actively trading in Africa.”

INTL FCStone’s Global Payments Division, which offers cross-border payments solutions to global financial institutions, international aid and development organizations, non-governmental organizations, and multinational corporations, will join the ranks of other NABC strategic partners, such as Heineken, Airfrance-KLM and SGS.

Niels van Duinen, Vice President, FX Sales at INTL FCStone’s Global Payments Division states: “We have been active in the NABC community for more than a year, during which time we have assisted many of the organization’s SME members in mitigating their cross-border financial risk.  I look forward to deepening our partnership in 2018, and to continuing to work with the NABC to facilitate transparent, safe, and profitable business in Africa.”
