Locked-in Rates For Future Payments
We live in unpredictable times and swings in the currency markets can have a tremendous impact on your company balance sheet or on your personal projects. A forward contract allows you to lock in a rate that fits your budget. You ‘buy now, pay later’, at a specified future date, at an exchange rate agreed upon today.
Lock in today’s rate for your future payments and stay in control of your budget.

When to use a forward contract?
The price of any overseas order changes minute by minute. By booking a forward contract, you can remove this currency risk and secure the cost of your future stock purchases. By ‘playing it safe’, and booking against company budgeted levels, forward contracts help protect company exposures. A forward contract is also very useful when repatriating foreign profits, planning your emigration or investing in an overseas property for example.
Why currency hedging?
You may not like the idea of being locked out of any positive market movements. But currency hedging is made to prevent uncertainty, it allows you to stay on top of your budget without adding any unexpected costs due to market movements. It limits market impacts, creates a safety net, helps to plan and forecast, on top of giving you peace of mind. By hedging your currency, you can make more strategic currency trades.
