Our FX option service allows you to keep the FX risk under control by hedging through FX option so that your foreign currency receivables or payables would be less affected by the volatility of the FX market. With an FX option, you can fix the exchange rate between two currencies for an agreed period of time. You can then exercise the option on the agreed date, or choose to let it expire if the prevailing market rate is more favourable.
If you have more sophisticated FX hedging needs, please approach us for structuring a hedging solution best suited to manage your FX exposure.
Our FX forward service allows you to protect your foreign currency receivables and payables from exchange rate volatilities with an FX Forward contract. An FX forward contract fixes the exchange rate for a particular date in the future, whether it’s days, months or years later. The exchange is to be completed on that day at the pre-agreed rates without being affected by the prevailing market price.
