Hedging and FX risk management solutions help your business manage and mitigate volatility in the foreign exchange market. We understand participating in the global market on any scale can bring great opportunities, while also introducing unique foreign exchange exposure. Whether purchasing machinery from vendors, selling parts to clients, or paying rent across borders, currency exchange rates can create uncertainty on your bottom line.

It is critical to devise a risk management plan that mitigates FX volatility risk by stabilizing cash flows and protecting budgeted rates. Foreign currency hedging can be likened to an insurance policy that protects against the impact of foreign exchange risk.

Determine the right tools to hedge currencies

When you approach your currency hedging strategy, determining which tools such as - Fixed-Dated Forwards, Open-Dated Forwards, FX Swaps, and FX Spot Payments - should be deployed is important. Learn the difference between some of the tools you can use below.

Fixed-Dated Forwards
The most common hedging tool, forward contracts fix a defined future (value) date at which to buy or sell a stated amount of currency at an agreed rate. The defined future date cannot be altered.

Open-Dated Forwards
This hedging tool offers the flexibility of an open time period in which to settle and deliver the currency. Open forwards allow you to draw down against the original amount contracted prior to the value date.

FX Swaps
The simultaneous purchase and sale of identical amounts of one currency for another with two different value dates (normally spot and forward) is used to modify delivery obligations for Fixed-Dated Forwards.

FX Spot Payments
This tool allows you to get a live exchange rate for the foreign currency you need to pay and make the payment right then and there. Easy, fast, and secure.
