CU 2.0 Fintech Friday: PeopleHedge

CU2.0 credit union fintech partnership

It’s CU 2.0 Fintech Friday! Today, Chris Otey sits down with PeopleHedge to discuss all things credit union, fintech, and digital innovation.

PeopleHedge helps importers, exporters, credit unions, and community banks with foreign exchange services. As they put it, “typically, they shave about a hundred dollars off the cost of an average transaction for the bank or credit union.”

It works like this: buying and selling products abroad means dealing with tricky currency conversion rates. PeopleHedge helps buyers and vendors save money on conversion rates by offering flat rate pricing for foreign exchange.

Beyond just saving money on exchange rate conversions, PeopleHedge also provides simple hedging capabilities. You can lock in exchange rates months in advance. This capability allows credit unions, banks, and businesses to secure advantageous conversion rates ahead of time for more savings.

Lastly, PeopleHedge can help you learn more about the market you’re in. It provides valuable information about your market size, growth rate, your customers, and your competitors.
