Helping you build beyond borders

making foreign trade easy & fair

Managing trade and finances can be painful for any business that buys or sells in foreign markets. Navigating the world of volatile exchange rates, hidden costs, and obscure cross-border payments is hard for anyone, especially for a small business.

Our beliefs

WHY HEDGEFLOWS?

TECHNOLOGY THAT GIVES YOU THE EXTRA HEDGE

FAIR VISION: Every business deserves a fair chance to trade safely and grow internationally.

EASY TOOLS: No more hidden fees, tedious payment runs, or mysterious foreign exchange gains & losses.

TECH EDGE: Technology can empower any finance team to solve common challenges in foreign trade with ease and confidence.

OUR STORY

HedgeFlows was initially founded by Alex Axentiev, Neh Thaker and Arnar Jonsson; an experienced team of passionate, hard-working finance professionals with a background in markets and technology. They've built and managed businesses for leading banks and helped the world's largest corporations manage their international finances for over 20 years.

They started HedgeFlows to bring smaller businesses a modern, affordable financial toolkit to grow and compete internationally. Since then, they have been working hard on their mission to build a product and an equally passionate team that could help make their vision a reality.
