XE Small Business Spotlight - Casus Circus International

. 3 min read

At XE, we empower businesses of all sizes to compete globally by helping with their overseas money transfer needs. We are proud to partner with innovative businesses globally, which are changing the world – one great idea at a time.

Casus Circus International Pty Ltd is recognised as one of Australia’s leading providers of contemporary circus productions on the international stage.

Founded in Brisbane in 2011, the three co-founders Natano, Jesse and Lachlan had worked together in previous roles and formed Casus when they wanted to bring a new work called Knee Deep, to life. Following the success and critical acclaim of Knee Deep on stages around the world, Casus has become an established touring company of sixteen acrobats, making up three casts which tour internationally with the shows Knee Deep, Chasing Smoke, You & I, Driftwood and their latest work DNA.

How XE helps Casus with their foreign exchange requirements

We recently spoke with Deb Wilks, Executive Director at Cluster Arts who acts in a General Manager capacity for Casus and looks after the company’s finance and business requirements. With Casus’ cast spending more than 90% of their time performing overseas, Deb receives regular payments from overseas suppliers, particularly from Europe and the UK. Therefore, locking in a favourable exchange rate between the EUR/AUD and GBP/AUD is imperative.

The use of Forward Exchange Contracts provides Deb with certainty and peace of mind as to how much she can expect to receive, which is particularly helpful when paying wages in AUD.

"I first met the guys at XE three years ago, and I have been working with them ever since. David (Drummond, XE Foreign Exchange Dealer) is fabulous to work with. He always makes things simple.

Whatever our need - whether we’re receiving payment from a supplier or are sending funds abroad for future travel arrangements, I simply email him to lock in a rate and he is always quick to respond. I also use XE.com to check exchange rates regularly – it makes it easy having an online service where everything related to foreign exchange and money transfer is in the one place.”
