Global Reach Canada is uniquely positioned for rapid growth in Ontario
Earlier this year, Global Reach Group—a leading UK foreign exchange specialist with a near 20-year history— expanded into Canada with a fully-fledged team of nearly 60 incredible industry veterans. Our team is established across the country to serve businesses locally.
Since launching Global Reach Canada in May, we're innately proud of the unprecedented growth we've experienced, especially during an economy impacted by the Covid pandemic. We're grateful to our early adopters and thrilled to meet those yet to come, and are especially enthusiastic about expanding our client base in Ontario given an exciting recent development.
The Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) has provided Global Reach Canada with a regulatory framework allowing us to provide foreign exchange hedging services to Ontario businesses. Global Reach is the first Canadian FX provider to meet the OSC’s Over the Counter (OTC) Derivatives Dealer business conduct and risk management conditions. The measures we have put in place to meet these conditions provide important safeguards to Global Reach Canada clients that, to date, have not existed for clients of unregistered OTC FX derivatives dealers.
Our team in Ontario are some of the most knowledgable professionals you can find in the Canadian FX space, with nearly 80 years of combined experience. The team offers a proactive approach to managing your currency exposure, providing customized solutions that help you mitigate the risks currency markets can create. From SMEs to FTSE 100 companies, we build strong relationships and design proactive strategies to support your business’ foreign exchange goals. Our experienced team will evaluate the extent of your exposure, develop multi-currency hedging solutions that are aligned to your budget levels, or simply help streamline global supplier payments.
