Foreign Exchange Risk


We help corporate clients involved in overseas transactions (such as importers or exporters) to identify and mitigate risks linked to fluctuation of foreign exchange rates. By taking away currency related risks, we enable clients to focus on their core business activities and perform more accurate financial planning.

Foreign exchange volatility can also provide the prospect of realizing potential profits as a result of a favourable market move. Striking the right balance between risk and return can be a common objective for many organisations with regards to their currency risk strategy.

Using appropriate hedging structures we enable clients to leverage opportunities for gains when the market moves in their favour while remaining fully protected against adverse market movements.

Our primary aim is to ensure that you appreciate the nature and magnitude of the foreign exchange risk involved in your commercial activity and work with you to generate optimal risk solutions based on your requirements.  Furthermore we help clients design, implement and maintain robust and effective hedging strategies to cover their foreign exchange exposure.

Some examples of FX hedging products include:

  • FX forward Contracts
  • FX Options
  • Synthetic Forwards and other Option Strategies
