Forward Exchange Contracts

Using forward exchange contracts you can:

  • Fix the rate of exchange for foreign currency transactions for a specified date or time period.
  • Budget more accurately for international projects.
  • Know exactly what your costs or income will be.
  • Cover most major currencies.

Subject to application and approval process.

You pay the foreign exchange rate which is based on the spot rate on the day of the deal. A forward exchange contract is binding and will have to be cancelled if you don't use it. This may result in a profit or loss depending on the exchange rate on the day of cancellation.
