University of Sussex Client Story. Corporate Banking at Barclays

University of Sussex

The University of Sussex is ranked in the top twenty universities1 in the UK and is an internationally renowned research institution, with over 75% of the research activity at Sussex categorised as world leading (41) in terms of originality, significance and rigour.

The University faced a challenge - they received grants in EUR periodically throughout the year, and have previously had reasonable certainty on the amount of funds they would receive in GBP over the next 6 months. However, with fluctuating and unpredictable exchange rates, an increasing concern and uncertainty on what the value of the periodic grants would be, posed a significant challenge to the University – leaving the University at risk when planning the financial year ahead.
