Protect your future

We offer a comprehensive foreign exchange advisory service to help you make the right strategic hedging decisions for your business.

With exchange rates fluctuating continuously, businesses need a well-managed foreign exchange risk policy to protect themselves from long-term instability. Our expert strategists work with you to define the type of risk and your exposure to it, and then devise the strategy that best mitigates it – from hedging products that reduce impact on your near-term cash flow to longer term foreign exchange management plans.

Take a strategic approach

We have an established and proven four-step approach to advising you on the best foreign exchange strategy.

Identify the risk

There are several different types of risk a business can face, such as transactional, translational and economic risk. Our first step is to identify which most applies to you.

Assess the risk

Levels of risk can vary depending on the scale of your exposure to it and how much you consider acceptable. We conduct a full review to establish how material it is to you.

Devise a strategy

Once we know how material your risk level is, we explore the best ways to control it using spot and forward contracts, options and structured products. We present you with a clear, easy-to-understand strategy explaining your risk profile and next course of action.

Review and refine

With your strategy defined and implemented, we continue to review and assess how it is performing. In the volatile currency market, this is particularly important so we can react and update your strategy as the landscape changes.
