We help businesses hedge against the effects of fluctuations in exchange rates.
If your business trades internationally, you are probably exposed to foreign exchange risk. We can help you hedge your operations against the effects of fluctuations in exchange rates.
What is currency hedging?
Currency hedging involves minimising the negative effects associated with fluctuations in exchange rates. Hedging is suitable for any company exposed to foreign exchange risk. If you run a business that involves cash flows in foreign currency you will be exposed to foreign exchange risk.
Speculation in FX contributes to volatility
The foreign exchange markets are open 24 hours a day. With globalisation, commercial trade in foreign exchange has increased. We also know that the majority of participants in these markets are speculating. The speculators create major volatility in the rates.
There are a number of hedging products that minimise the effects
Currency hedging can be done in several different ways and using different products. The most common hedging products are currency accounts, FX forward contracts and FX option contracts. These products and contracts are used to prevent the possible effects major fluctuations in exchange rates can have on businesses. You can read more about the products we offer in the product list at the bottom of this page.
