Our Take

The Kyriba report serves as a strong reminder that the continued globalization of business and trade results in an equivalent growth in US corporate exposure to foreign exchange movements. While mitigation of all exposure is difficult to achieve and possibly prohibitively expensive, use of cash management applications such as Kyriba can help companies to better recognize and manage their exposure.

As global politics become increasingly tense and trade wars continue to escalate without any apparent path to reconciliation, applications such as Kyriba become increasingly important to corporations to manage their FX risk.
