Employer description

TCX Investment Management Company BV (TIM) –  www.tcxfund.com

TIM is the exclusive investment manager of The Currency Exchange Fund NV (TCX or the Fund). TCX is an innovative capital markets initiative focusing on the provision of longterm cross-currency and interest-rate derivatives in frontier market currencies. TCX offers hedges to international investors that provide long term local currency funding to developing country borrowers, or to domestic USD or EUR borrowers in these countries. TCX was formed in 2007 and currently runs a global emerging market swaps portfolio of USD 1.5 billion (notional value), with the intention to double this.

TCX operates on a double bottom line, seeking to offer sustainable local currency solutions to participants in its target markets whilst expecting a profitable, market based return. It has a capital base of circa USD 600 million provided by 20 leading development finance institutions and microfinance investors (including IFC, EBRD, KfW, FMO, AFD/Proparco, JBIC, AfDB, DBSA and others).

TCX’s origination is closely linked to that of its investors. A predominant source of transactions is meeting the hedging requirements of its investors directly, leading to a very close cooperative effort between the TIM commercial team and that of the investing institutions. A secondary transaction origination channel is the direct approach to investor clients in developing countries. TIM currently has 27 employees. The CRO’s office presently consists of 2 employees. A significant portion of the non-commercial activities and support functions are outsourced to several operational partners, including Cardano Risk Management B.V. and DLM Finance B.V.
