Forwards Contracts

Lock in an FX rate for a future date up to a year in advance, so you can secure margins even if the market moves. This way, you know in advance exactly what exchange rate will be applied to your transaction.

It is important to keep in mind that when you book a Forward Contract you are obligated to exchange funds at maturity, regardless of what the available spot rate is at that time.

Market Orders

Secure a desired exchange rate by taking advantage of our 24-hour market monitoring facility. We watch the markets on your behalf, even while you’re sleeping, and either notify you if your target rate is reached, or process your order for you automatically if preferred.

Future Payments

If the market has moved in your favour, but you’re not due to pay for weeks or even months, Future Payments let you lock-in the current exchange rate up to 90 days in advance. Your bottom line is protected, your foreign funds are ready when you need them, and there’s zero upfront cost.

Option Contracts

Option Contracts provide protection from adverse market developments while also giving you the opportunity to participate in favourable moves. In general, an Option will offer a lesser degree of protection in exchange for a greater degree of upside participation. This flexibility allows you to tailor your strategy to your specific requirements, hedging objectives and risk appetite.
