Spot

Same and next day delivery. Take advantage of our banking relationships to secure the best rate of exchange on your transactions. Mix these SPOT transactions with our other products as part of your overall hedging strategy.

Orders

Market Order – Target a rate that automatically fills when the market moves to your desired point. This allows you to harness gains without the need to constantly check the exchange rate.

Stop Loss – Protect yourself against adverse market movements 24/5. 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.

Non-deliverable Forwards

A forward transaction entered into with the intention of fixing an FX price for a specified future date. The Transaction is the then always closed, either on that date, or prior, by the client, by reversing the transaction with an equal and opposing trade. The resulting profit or loss is then settled by or to the client on a cash basis. These transactions can be utilised to hedge an asset that is valued in a currency other than your base currency.

Swaps

A swap transaction is where you exchange one currency balance for another, at a fixed exchange rate, for a future date where you exchange back funds into the original balance. This transaction is often used by companies looking to obtain funding via the currency markets in a particular currency, as opposed to borrowing funds locally in the required currency.

Vanilla Options

A vanilla option works much like an insurance contract. You pay a non-returnable premium in exchange for the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a stated amount of currency at a pre-determined rate and date. If the market moves against you then you can exercise your option, having protected yourself in much the same was as forward. However, if the market moves in your favour you can discard your option and purchase at the prevailing SPOT rate.

Structured Options

A structured option uses vanilla options as building blocks to construct a ‘zero premium’ product that allows you to protect yourself against adverse market movements whilst simultaneously giving you the opportunity to harvest any market gains if the rate moves in your favour.
