Foreign exchange risk management

If you're trading in other currencies, talk to us about ways to mitigate exchange rate and cashflow risks – like forward exchange contracts or currency options.

Forward exchange contracts

Book an exchange rate for a future date.

You'll know how much money you'll receive – and have to pay – regardless of the exchange rate on the day.

Good if you have a foreign currency transaction coming up and you're worried about exchange rates in the meantime.

Currency options

Like a forward exchange contract, but you pay a premium to have the option to decide on the day whether you want to use the rate you've booked or not.

Good if you want to ensure exchange rates remain favourable, with the ability to stay flexible in case exchange rates improve.
