HedgeWiz was born out of a need to fill a solution that no banker could provide: simple, tailored hedging solutions. Like us, they understand that the primary reason businesses don't hedge their foreign exchange risks is because traditional hedging had lots of bureaucracy and complexity. And, as a result, many businesses have suffered needless financial disruption. HedgeWiz provides a simply robust solution for cross-border businesses to manage currency risks.
Their ongstanding relationships with the 'Big 4' international accounting firms enables us to provide highly effective hedging strategies recognized by international accounting standards.
British Exporters Association
We are proud members of The British Exporters Association (BExA) - an independent national trade association representing the interests of the export community. Their membership is drawn from a wide cross section of companies; Large and SME Exporters, Banks, Credit Insurers and Brokers, Legal firms and other services providers - giving us an excellent perspective of the issues that matter to UK exporters.
BExA is a valued contributor to and is engaged with many Government departments and committees to drive export policy forward. These include meetings with the Minister of State for Trade & Export Promotion, the Department for International Trade and UK Export Finance (UKEF), and the Department for International Development. They have driven UKEF to improve its product range through our annual ECA benchmarking papers, which have become the go-to guide to determine how the UKEF product range compares to other ECAs around the world.
In addition to their benchmarking papers we provide practical advice to their members on all export related matters - either through the well regarded series of guides to exporting or through regular Industry meetings. BExA provides a great opportunity for networking with like minded companies to drive UK exports towards the UK’s export challenge targets.

Queen Park Rangers
The rich history of Queens Park Rangers Football Club began way back in 1882 when Christchurch Rangers Football Club was formed. Another local side by the name of St Jude’s Institute then merged with Christchurch Rangers in 1886 to became Queens Park Rangers.
QPR turned professional in 1889 and set a league record, playing home matches in almost 20 different stadiums.
QPR have enjoyed a number of memorable moments, including winning the Division Three title and the League Cup in 1967, the first team to do so at the old Wembley Stadium. They were then Football League runners-up by one point to Liverpool in 1976, FA Cup runners-up to Tottenham Hotspur in 1982 and were founding members of the Premier League.
