By March 14, 2014 Press Releases

TIGA, the network for developers and digital publishers has welcomed leading UK foreign exchange brokerage, Halo Financial as its latest member.  

Halo, which can save UK games businesses up to 4% on their international money transfers, offers a comprehensive range of services with a flexible and personalised approach for each client. This means each client knows when and how to transfer money in order to secure the best possible rates and profit margins.  

TIGA’s own research shows 95% of UK games businesses are export focused, so maximising the possible savings on each currency transaction is something that could help the vast majority of the industry operate more efficiently. Of particular interest to TIGA members may be Halo’s complimentary (and jargon-free) Currency Audit & updates, contact Adrian.McMahon@halofinancial.com for further details.  

As you can see for yourself, Halo Financial has earned extremely positive, five out of five ratings from its clients and is recognised as one of the top two Money Transfer Webpages by moneysupermarket.com.

Halo has also featured more 300 times in leading financial media including CNBC Europe, Bloomberg and the BBC. Founded in 2005 and based in London, Halo Financial specialises in the UK video game industry and also manages currency risk for both B2B and B2C clients in sectors such as international trade, finance, education, and overseas property.

All of the company’s qualified technical analysts are proud Members of the Society of Technical Analysts. Halo Financial is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority and HM Revenue and Customs.

Adrian McMahon, Business Development Consultant, Halo Financial, commented:

“Our goal is to provide a better standard of expertise and more competitive exchange rates to UK video game businesses than they will get from any competitor. This approach in other sectors has helped us become one of the UK’s leading foreign exchange brokerages. “Having your foreign currency exchanges managed properly could potentially mean a 100%+ increase in a company’s net operating margin or looked at from another angle, could effectively mean a 4% increase in revenue from existing international sales. As such we hope our membership of TIGA will help us contribute to a strong and financially savvy UK games industry.”

Dr. Richard Wilson, CEO, TIGA added: “At TIGA, we are seeing more and more evidence that improving the core business performance and financial management of developers and digital publishers will create the best return for the industry as a whole. Given the export focused nature of our industry, I look forward to seeing Halo Financial help  TIGA members with their foreign currency needs.”
