BENEFITS FOR YOUR BUSINESS
Spotting imminent currency turmoil is difficult, but anticipating its possible sources and extent is the key to greater security. Hedging strategies are bespoke solutions, aligned with the operational and financial factors that make every business unique. Who you trade with, where you trade and how you trade are essential questions in planning ways to limit your corporate foreign exchange exposure.
Three main options are available which, in combination, can be used to create an effective hedging strategy. Spot contracts are a means of buying or selling currency at live rates which can be used in instantaneous transfers, thereby removing the risk inherent in long lead times.
Forward Contracts and Currency Options
Forward contracts are agreements which allow you to reserve the exchange rate that obtains on the day of the transaction so the same rate can be used in the future. Currency option contracts give you the right to buy or sell a particular currency at an agreed rate on the maturity of the option.

Foreign Exchange for Buying Property Abroad
The most widely used method to avoid serious losses on major property purchases is the forward contract. It is an agreement between the parties to fix the exchange rate at its current rate or at an agreed rate for the entire length of the transaction process. Whatever happens in the currency market, this FX hedging approach removes your purchase from that market and freezes it so that the amount you pay in your home currency cannot change.
