Forward Exchange Contracts

Using forward exchange contracts you can buy and sell currencies in advance, at fixed exchange rates. So they cover the risk of exchange rate fluctuations and guarantee the value of future transactions.

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.
