News provided by ALT21 on Tuesday 4th Jun 2024

London, United Kingdom – 04 June 2024 – At the Money20/20 Europe conference, ALT21, a leading foreign exchange and hedging technology company, today announced the roll-out of their disruptive offering for businesses, helping them save billions on their foreign currency operations.

This follows years of investment in developing an all-in-one technology platform that automates all key steps of the end-to-end currency exchange and FX hedging processes, allowing ALT21 to provide a highly efficient and scalable service. Its proprietary technology, featuring low human-touch and straight-through processing, significantly reduces operating costs, enabling ALT21 to offer FX conversions at just 4 basis points.

Businesses could save billions annually if they efficiently managed their foreign exchange (FX) transactions. With a charge of just 4 basis points on FX conversions, ALT21 aims to deliver significant savings to businesses, compared to over approximately 200 basis points typically charged by traditional banks. Simply exchanging £100,000 into euros on ALT21 costs a user £40[1], a 98% saving on the approximately £2,000 it would cost using a traditional bank.

Compared to other alternative providers like Wise, which operates the same currency pair at a cost of 35 basis points[2], ALT21 provides significant savings to businesses, being nearly nine times cheaper, and setting a new standard in financial efficiency.

ALT21 is able to offer competitive FX conversion rates sustainably, thanks to a fair yet competitive margin structure that supports long-term affordability. Additionally, the platform addresses the need for consistent ultra-low pricing on hedging products, providing full transparency with real-time display of ALT21 mark-ups on all transaction costs, pre- and post-trade. For example, ALT21 offers fixed and flexible FX Forwards starting at just 4 basis points per month, whereas Revolut Business charges a fixed flat fee of 80 basis points[3], regardless of the tenor duration. This approach ensures businesses can trust ALT21 with predictable and fair pricing for all their foreign exchange needs.

Pritesh Ruparel, CEO of ALT21 said:

“Businesses often face high costs and significant risks with traditional foreign exchange providers, which is especially pressing for small and medium-sized businesses, the backbone of our economies. As a dual-regulated provider, ALT21 aims to offer the most competitive FX solutions for businesses, providing a real alternative to incumbent providers through transparent and cost-effective services.”

Ruparel added:

“By showing our mark-ups on all products before each transaction in real-time, we set a new standard for transparency. Our advanced technology reflects our deep market knowledge, enabling us to deliver scalable and high-quality services. We look forward to entering new markets and revolutionizing the financial industry, helping clients make immediate and substantial savings.”

ALT21 is focused on developing and servicing sophisticated multi-currency and FX hedging solutions tailored for businesses of all sizes. Its platform supports 34 currencies, allowing fully automated trading with no subscription fees or hidden costs.
