Foreign Exchange (FX) with QTC

QTC clients have access to exclusive FX rates with no wire or bank fees2, via the QTC Dealing Desk or QTC’s online FX platform powered by NAB. At QTC we focus on providing value, looking for new ways to save money and increase budget certainty for the State of Queensland.

In our role of funding the State, QTC has established a strong reputation in international financial markets and open access to a global network of investors and financial intermediaries. This position enables QTC to offer clients access to wholesale market rates.

Identifying opportunities to save with FX in procurement

QTC has identified an easy way for Government entities to reduce costs and help achieve budget certainty within procurement. Recent QTC client case studies have found significant margins added into AUD pricing for goods sourced from overseas (including Australian resellers).

The simple process of requesting tender quotes in both AUD and the supplier’s preferred currency, allows the supplier to provide an alternative quote which eliminates currency risk passed to them for an AUD quote.

The two quotes will increase transparency and show which price is cheaper at prevailing exchange rates. Contact QTC to find out more about wholesale rates and easily managing risk for tenders in a foreign currency.

Client results

“Urban Utilities has recently been working with QTC to manage our hidden FX exposures. This resulted in Urban Utilities requesting that a supplier provide pricing for equipment in both AUD and in the local currency where the equipment was manufactured. By managing the FX exposure internally and not taking the AUD pricing, Urban Utilities was able to save approximately $250K on the purchase of the equipment. Urban Utilities is looking to continue this practice to ensure that we deliver the lowest cost to serve.”
