Umkhulu is a web based personalised information solution for each of our clients.
Individual/corporate clients can build their own page of information data and keep this available whilst on the internet to check currencies, forward currency rates, commodities and economic data as it is released from around the globe.
Firstly, on a subscription basis, Umkhulu allows corporates or individuals to build their own personalised dashboard of data to enable them to check delayed pricing for currencies, forwards, commodities and global economic data from wherever they are. The delay is ten minutes from internationally known financial information providers that are used by professional operators in the financial markets.
Secondly, also on subscription, and “ring fenced” using secure password access, Umkhulu provides a management tool for existing clients which is used to provide real time valuations of existing forex and forward positions, including real time forward calculations, giving corporate management the ability to make informed decisions about their foreign exchange exposure at any time and from anywhere.
The team has a cumulative 40+ years banking experience, predominantly in the treasury environment, including experience in the UK, US and South African financial market.
The team is small, yet specific, and lists numerous private and listed companies as its clients. Whilst the volume of foreign exchange exposure we manage on their behalf is significant, we would rather think of our presence as how many people are affected by the work we do: over 200,000 employees of the various clients we represent, and we are there to directly contribute to each and every company's bottom line.Read more
