We help protect your bottom line from the unpredictability of currency markets using spot, forward contracts, options and structured products.
Strategies that create stability
Managing risk in a volatile landscape
Dynamic and inherently unpredictable
The fluctuating foreign exchange market can significantly impact your commercial viability, competitiveness and cash flow.
Experience has taught us that there is no generic solution and that each business and industry faces its own unique risks. We work with you to define your risk profile based on the currencies you transact in and then devise bespoke hedging strategies that help you know when and how much currency to buy using spot and forward contracts, options and structured products. This approach helps control your exposure to volatile exchange rates and adds long-term security and value to your business.
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.
