How a international Fashion brand shielded its cash flows from currency volatility

How a international Fashion brand shielded its cash flows from currency volatility

A international Fashion brand was looking for an automated solution to shield its cash flows from currency volatility. Learn how they got FX risk in control with Kantox Currency Management Automation solution.

The European company is a leading direct-to-consumer fashion brand which also sells third-party clothes via its online marketplace. Because it features the latest trends in women’s fashion, the company makes thousands of purchases from Asian and European suppliers, settled mainly in EUR and USD. On the sales side, every product available in the company’s marketplace can be purchased in multiple currencies.


Before using Kantox’s solutions, the company was not hedging its foreign currency purchases. Since there is a gap of 150 days between the time purchase orders are issued, and suppliers are paid out, cash flows were directly exposed to currency fluctuations. Concerning sales, the company’s Payment Service Provider (PSP) was executing like-for-like settlements once a week for all currencies. These funds were then used to pay suppliers or held in the accounts, creating a translation risk on the company’s balance sheet.


Determined to secure profit margins with a hedging strategy that supported the fast growth and scalability of the company, the company implemented Kantox's Dynamic Hedging® Solution and reaped several immediate benefits:

  • Secure profit margins: By using Kantox Dynamic Hedging®, the company can now automate the hedging of sales and purchase orders and thus reduce its exposure to currency fluctuations on both sides.
  • Support scalability and growth: Kantox’s connectivity with internal systems enables the company to easily make strategic and operational adjustments, as well as expand its currency offerings in the future.
  • Increase cash flows: Hedging USD-denominated exposure using forward contracts allows the company to take advantage of favourable forward points.
