HERE'S WHAT ONE OF OUR CUSTOMERS HAS TO SAY:

I started working with the team at Cambridge Global Payments to manage my production FX hedging requirements. Taking a simple approach together we developed a risk management strategy to manage production exposure and long term tax credit receivables for cost certainty. I rely on the Cambridge team to manage the exposure on my yearly production slate and reduce the risk so I can profitably manage my business. These solutions combined with Cambridge’s unsecured credit facilities allow me the flexibility and liquidity to manage complex production funding and cash flow. Together Cambridge’s value proposition allows me the financial flexibility to profitability manage my productions.
