For many companies, doing business overseas has become part of their daily routine. Maintaining clients in various countries often proves the viability and success of a product internationally. However, when businesses look at domestic and global markets, different questions can often arise.

One of these important questions is currency exchange rates.

What are Currency Exchange Rates?

A currency exchange rate is the rate by which one national currency can be exchanged for another. This often determines the respective value of one currency in relation to another during exchange and trade. Created by differing forces, an exchange rate is often the factor that determines international success.

For example, the semi-recent hyperinflation of the Venezuelan Bolivar has destroyed its former value as a “hard currency.” Its collapse made it impossible for outside companies to do business with Venezuelan firms or operate within the nation. Understanding shifts like this can be critical as your company grows and expands.
