Chamber Foreign Exchange

Currency fluctuations can have a negative effect on companies trading overseas. This competitive foreign exchange service is exclusive to members who are looking to protect their business against adverse rate fluctuations.  

Our Strategic Partners AFEX, and their dedicated Manchester office, are able to spend valuable time with clients to understand their industry, provide insights from across their markets and guide you through complexities of international payments and FX trading.

Chamber Foreign Exchange will assess your:

  • Exchange rates

  • Speed of payments

  • Credit terms

  • Transfer fees

  • Impact of currency movements on your payments

  • Online capabilities

"Since switching operation over to AFEX, we have been able to reduce our costs (telegraphic transfer fees), improve the rates of exchange we obtain and utilise their efficient, clear system for making the payments to our client’s suppliers.

This has all been a great benefit not only to us, but to our customers here in the U.K. whom we are able to share in our cost savings and improved rates of exchange.

The location of AFEX in the centre of Manchester was also an important part of our decision to move over to them. Being in the centre of the city made it very easy to keep in contact and visit them.

The team are always extremely helpful, polite and professional. We look forward to continue working with them in the future to our mutual benefit." - Mark Frost, Creative Capital
