Striking a fine balance between risk and reward  for your business

What We Do

About Us >

A straight forward approach to foreign exchange risk management

For corporate and institutional clients, we focus on achieving greater control over the impact that currency volatility has on business objectives and market competitiveness.

Our business is solving the problem of exchange rate unpredictability by developing foreign exchange strategies that help international organisations to counterbalance the three main variables that need to be evaluated when hedging: how much, how far forward and when?

We work alongside you in crafting and executing hedging programmes that enable synchronicity with regards to when, how much and how far forward to purchase currency. This controls the impact that exchange rate volatility has on your profit margins, cash flow, and ability to buy or sell goods at competitive prices.

Our consistent, pragmatic approach to foreign exchange risk management is intended not only to safeguard your bottom line but also to work sustainably over the long-term to strengthen it.

Our Corporate
Foreign Exchange

Spot Contracts

The most common form of currency exchange, this instrument lets you convert currency immediately at the current exchange rate to enjoy the convenience of making a payment on the same day (where possible).

Forward Contracts

If you’re making international payments, you can benefit from the security of knowing how much these future expenses will cost by using a Forward Contract. This product allows you to fix a price based on the current market rate for buying or selling currencies on a specified date in the future. They are typically used by businesses that have future payments or receipts in foreign currency because it protects both budget and profit margins.

Flexible Forward Contracts

Unlike traditional Forward Contracts, which require a specified date in the future on which the amount must be exchanged using your fixed rate, a Flexible Forward offers more adaptability. This allows you to draw down on your currency at any time up to the maturity date of the contract – as long as you draw down the full amount on or before this date.

Entering into a Flexible Forward contract is simple: 

  • You specify the period you expect to make or receive payments in and the total amount you want to hedge.
  • Your foreign exchange dealer will help you secure a competitive exchange rate based on the current market rate.
  • Once you accept the exchange rate, the transaction is agreed.
  • You can draw down multiple times over the period of the contract by getting in touch with your relationship manager.

Market Order

A market order is an instruction to your foreign exchange relationship manager that your business requires a specific exchange rate in the future. As soon as your rate is achievable, it will be secured for the specified amount you want to exchange.

If your business needs to make international payments at an unspecified future date, market orders can be an effective part of your currency hedging strategy.

There are two different types of market orders that can be used:

Limit Order:

Target a specific exchange rate above current level – if your rate becomes achievable, your currency purchase will be automatically triggered. Useful for international payments that are not deadline-driven.

Stop Loss Order:

Specifying the minimum exchange rate you are prepared to trade at means that the cost of your international payments will be protected from volatility to assure the ability to meet financial commitments.

One-Cancels-the-Other Order

A one-cancels-the-other order is a pair of orders that are placed simultaneously and are linked. This consists of a limit order (an order that is favourable than the current market rate) and a stop loss (an order that is worse than the current market rate). As soon as the market moves to rate that triggers one of the orders, the other order is automatically cancelled. For example, if the limit order is triggered, the stop loss is cancelled automatically and vice versa. You will be liable for whichever order level is hit first. This ensures that in volatile periods you will only be liable for the first order level that is hit.

Structured products*

Structured products are a popular, flexible tool useful in the management of foreign exchange risk. They can provide the security of a fixed exchange rate as well as the opportunity to benefit from positive market movements

Structured products can be an alternative to traditional Forward Contracts. However, they are investment products and carry a degree of risk as a result.
