Better FX - A guide to improved foreign exchange practice in the UK charity sector

Nana Yaa Boakye-Adjei, 2011 Stamp Out Poverty

Better FX is a practical guide for charities and social enterprises wanting to start, improve, or learn more about foreign exchange procurement practices.

Many UK charities and social enterprises operate globally – most work in development, but some engage in trading overseas. These charities are therefore exposed to the uncertainties surrounding purchase of foreign exchange.

This publication is not intended to be a technical guide on all aspects of foreign exchange procurement. Instead it aims to provide guidance to users. If a more detailed understanding is required, you should seek professional advice.
