Hedging

At Eiger FX our core belief is that hedging programmes should be derived from a company’s commercial objectives first and foremost – not a directional view of the currency markets.

In our experience, reactive decisions based on market movements often result in irrational and disproportionate purchases of currency. This can contribute to financial instability and ultimately hamper business growth.

That is why our hedging programmes are designed to bring an element of structure and formality to the way SMEs manage their foreign exchange risk. These programmes, aligned with the commercial objectives of the company, ensure that profit margins and cashflow are protected.

And adjust your hedging programme accordingly as and when your company’s requirements change.

Spot

Enter the Spot market to cover any unhedged exposures. Take advantage of our wholesale pricing to reduce transactional costs.

Spot trades can be booked either online via EFX Connect or over the phone.

Orders

Limit Order – Target a rate that automatically fills when the market moves to your desired point. Orders are live in the market 24/7.

Stop Loss – Protect yourself against adverse market movements. Your trade will automatically fill if the market drops to your worst-case rate in order to avoid any intolerable exchange rate losses.

Forwards

Fixed Dated – For when funds need to be delivered on a specified date in the future. Fixed dated forwards are priced more sharply than flexible forwards.

Flexible – when you need to take delivery of funds, perhaps multiple times, within a pre-determined window of time.

FX Options

Work much like an insurance contract. Pay a premium in exchange for the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a certain amount of currency on a future date. We also offer structured options to Professional Clients.

Please note that FX Options can carry a high degree of risk and may not be suitable for everyone.
