Volkswagen Brazil Selects FXGO to Manage Currency Exposure

Volkswagen Brazil, a wholly owned subsidiary of the German automobile manufacturer, has adopted Bloomberg’s foreign exchange (FX) trading platform FXGO to manage its global currency risks. In Brazil since 1953, Volkswagen Brazil is the country’s largest manufacturer of automobiles and light commercial vehicles and the largest automotive segment exporter.

FXGO is part of the Bloomberg Professional service, also used by Volkswagen Brazil to monitor global news and financial market data, communicate with global counterparties and evaluate economic outlooks.

“Bloomberg’s system simplifies our pricing process, increases internal and external communications and provides us a single, integrated solution for financial information and currency trading,” said Bernd Schmidt-Liermann, Volkswagen’s head of regional treasury in South America. “The platform provides our organisation with increased efficiency and agility, and that was paramount in our decision to select Bloomberg as our sole currency trading platform.”

Volkswagen Brazil also uses FXGO to manage FX exposure for Volkswagen Argentina and plans to use the platform with other subsidiaries across South America.

“We are providing the Volkswagen Brazil team a simple, commission-free solution that empowers them to manage their currency exposure,” said Geraldo Coelho, Bloomberg’s head of sales for South America. “Through FXGO we are offering companies of all sizes, geographies and industries the ability to improve their price discovery, automate financial transactions and ultimately reduce operational risks.”
