Over the last 25 years, Kshitij Consultancy Services (KSHITIJ.COM) has become known for its unconventional take on forex hedging.
While most people say currencies cannot be forecasted, or worse, that it is not their job to forecast currencies, KSHITIJ.COM is the first and the only firm in India to publish a 15-year track record of its Dollar-Rupee forecasts, with 72% Reliability.
While the commonly accepted wisdom tells corporates that forex is not your business, KSHITIJ.COM says that managing forex risk is very much a part of the business for every importer/ exporter.
Again, while the textbooks tell corporates that if they have a “natural hedge”, they run zero forex risk and therefore need not do anything, KSHITIJ.COM has actually been earning a positive spread between the Import and Export rates for the last 15 years, profit which goes straight to its clients bottomlines; without trading or speculation, through pure hedging.
In the last 3-4 years, leading corporate treasuries with crack teams having the best of resources at their disposal, who never hired a forex advisor earlier, have started to rely on the services of KSHITIJ.COM because they bring something to the table that is not otherwise available in the market.
