While risks are an integral part of any business, you can protect your business against currency and interest rate risk through effective risk management strategies.

Foreign Exchange Spot

A spot contract is a binding obligation to buy or sell a certain amount of foreign currency at the current market rate, for settlement in two business days.

Foreign Exchange Forward Contract

A forward exchange contract (or forward contract) is a binding obligation to buy or sell a certain amount of foreign currency at a pre-agreed rate of exchange, on or before a certain date.

Foreign Exchange Option

This is a contract that grants the holder the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell currency at a specified exchange rate during a specified period of time by paying a premium to the option seller.

Interest Rate Swap

An Interest Rate Swap (also known as an IRS, Vanilla Swap or simply a Swap) is an agreement between two parties under which each agrees to make periodic interest payments to the other for an agreed period of time, based on a notional amount. Typically one party pays a fixed interest rate, while the other party pays a floating interest rate based on a published index (e.g. KLIBOR (MYR), BBA-LIBOR, etc).
