AMSTERDAM

Hedge it for good
Celebrating 15 years of de-risking development finance

14 & 15 September 2022


Welcome in

Amsterdam

In 2007, a group of development finance institutions decided action was needed to protect their clients against the exchange rate volatility that came with their lending practices in hard currency. TCX was created as a collective initiative to provide a solution to currency risk and protect the financial stability of borrowers in emerging markets.

Since then, TCX has de-risked over $10 billion in development finance loans and has established itself as a catalyst for the development of currency markets. The Fund offers solutions for over 100 currencies worldwide with tenors up to 30 years and has been crisis-tested again and again. Today’s volatile environment proves the need for an institution that can offer currency risk protection at scale.

We look forward to welcoming you in Amsterdam. Register now and celebrate with us!
