For You For Your Business

Exchange rates change. But these fluctuations needn’t overly impact you.

We know that all our customers want to keep their money safe. But for businesses trading overseas volatile foreign exchange markets can be a real threat to their bottom line. During periods of heightened volatility, businesses can experience undesirable effects on profit margins, especially if they don’t have the right mitigation strategies in place.

And that’s where a Forward Contract comes in.

CurrencyUK Hero

Put simply, a Forward Contract allows you to take advantage of a favourable rate for a trade on a future date; you lock in a desirable exchange rate, then decide upon the transaction amount and delivery period. This gives you certainty that when you enter into a contract with a customer or supplier you know exactly what your costs and revenue will be. It works particularly well when buying goods or services that have long and uncertain lead times.

It’s essentially a hedging tool. By fixing an exchange rate for up to two years in advance of making a transfer, you can more effectively budget, maintain a competitive pricing model and protect your funds from negative market movements.
