Manage foreign exchange risk

Fix a future currency exchange rate

A forward exchange contract rate is based on the prevailing spot rate, plus or minus a premium or discount, which is determined by the interest rate differential between the two currencies involved.

It is a simple way to manage foreign exchange risk.

Forward foreign exchange contracts give customers the ability to fix a future currency exchange at a fixed rate.

Foreign Currency Derivatives

A derivative is an instrument of which the price is derived from one or more underlying instruments. The underlying asset is often a financial asset or rate, but it does not have to be. The derivative itself is a contract between two parties and the contract value is determined by fluctuations in the underlying asset.
