Understanding your needs
Banking as you expanded internationally used to be simple. You could open an account locally with a choice of banks, many of whom had departments who specialised in servicing subsidiaries of international groups.
As regulations applied to the banking sector have evolved, so too has the way in which banks operate, adding more security measures to ensure tighter banking controls and better risk management.
As an international business, this can make treasury management more complex, diverting valuable time away from matters of strategic importance to your business.
Our people, your partners
Blick Rothenberg has been helping international businesses to make payments and manage relationships with banks across multiple territories since the 1980s.
We can take ownership of your treasury management function so that your team can focus on generating sales, building relationships and otherwise leading your international expansion. We deliver this through your regular contacts here at Blick Rothenberg so you are not having to build multiple relationships.
Finding the right bank
We have partnered with a specialist banking consultancy that will help you to open international bank accounts.
They will consider your particular circumstances and assist you in finding the right bank to meet your needs. They will then guide you through the account opening process, assisting in completing the necessary paperwork and following up with the bank as required.
We can also discuss alternatives to traditional retail banks such as using foreign exchange brokers to minimise transactional and exchange costs when working across multiple territories.
Once an account is operational, we can help you manage your funds. We can prepare short term cash flow forecasts and work with your central treasury team to ensure that you have the right funds in the right place, at the right time.
Our team can also assist in setting up and submitting payments for you. We will only ever do so with you as a part of the approval process.
Security and protection
The processes that we have to protect your funds when providing treasury management services are covered by our SOC1 report (Sarbanes-Oxley). We are also an accredited BACS bureau (a UK payment system) and are audited by Vocalink, an entity owned by Mastercard.
We manage your treasury management so can focus on generating sales, building relationships and otherwise leading your international expansion.
