Forward Contract

Get the security of knowing how much your future expenses will cost.

In brief

If you’re making overseas payments, a Forward Contract lets you fix a price based on the current market rate for buying or selling currencies on a specified date in the future. Forward Contracts are typically used by businesses that have future payments or receipts in foreign currencies, because it protects both your budget and profit margins.

Market Order

Ideal for making international payments at an unspecified date in the future.

In brief

A Market Order instructs us that you need a specific exchange rate in the future. As soon as that rate is available, we’ll secure it for the amount you want to exchange. There are two different types of Market Orders.

Limit Orders target a specific exchange rate above the current level. If it becomes achievable, your currency purchase will be automatically triggered. Useful for international payments that are not deadline-driven.

Stop Loss Orders specify the minimum exchange rate you’re prepared to trade at. Having a worst-case scenario in place means the cost of your international payments will be protected from volatility, helping you make firmer financial commitments.

Flexible Forward Contract

A more adaptable way to approach your overseas payments.

In brief

Unlike traditional Forward Contracts (which require a specified date in the future when the amount must be exchanged at your fixed rate), a Flexible Forward contract is more adaptable. It lets you draw down on your currency at any time up to the maturity date of the contract – as long as you draw down the full amount on or before an agreed date.

First, specify the period in which you expect to make or receive payments, along with the total you want to hedge. We’ll help you secure a competitive exchange rate, based on the current market rate. Once you accept the exchange rate, the transaction is agreed, and you can draw down multiple times over the period of the contract.

One-Cancels-the-Other Order

A pair of orders that are placed simultaneously and linked.

The detail

A One-Cancels-the-Other Order is made up of two orders; a Limit Order (that is more favourable than the current market rate) and a Stop Loss (that is worse than the current market rate).

As soon as the market moves to a rate that triggers one of the orders, the other order is cancelled automatically. For example, if the Limit Order is triggered, the Stop Loss order is cancelled automatically and vice versa. This can be very useful in volatile times, as you’ll only be liable for the first order level that is hit.
