FX Forward

The FX Forward contract allows you to lock in an exchange rate for a specific currency amount on a specified date in future. You are committing to deliver a pre-agreed and fixed amount of one currency for another on a specified date in the future.

FX Options

FX Options are innovative products to manage foreign exchange risk exposure.

As an importer, if the value of the currency in which you trade increases, your import products will become correspondingly more expensive. Conversely, as an exporter you can find yourself at a disadvantage if currency rates fall.

FX Options are contracts that, for a fee, guarantee a worst-case exchange rate for the future purchase of one currency for another.

If you purchase an FX Option you have no obligation to use the fixed exchange rate. Foreign exchange options thus protect you against unfavourable currency movements while allowing you to participate in favourable movements.

FX Swaps


FX swaps are another product that enables you to manage foreign exchange risk exposure by giving you certainty regarding the exchange rate and currency you prefer to be exposed to. The benefit of the product is it assists with financial planning and hedging costs.

FX Swaps are contracts that do not involve an upfront swap fee.
If you purchase a FX Swap you are committed to use the fixed exchange rate you have contracted in the swap.
