A spot transaction is a vanilla foreign exchange product. They can be useful if you need to make an urgent or immediate payment. Payments can be made using the live exchange rate from our X-Hedge online platform and processed immediately.
Careful business planning is the best way to navigate economic uncertainty. Forward contracts are an effective way for you to reserve a price for buying and selling currency on a specific date in the future. When you agree to the amount and the date for settlement, the price is locked in.
Our experts are here to help you with all our product range. They will take the time to learn about your business and create bespoke structured products that will meet your FX needs.
Treasury First's risk management strategies will look to utilise spot, forwards, or option contracts or a combination to create structured products specifically designed for your needs.
Collar options are designed to offer you a ‘protection rate’ which is the worst case rate, and a ‘collar rate’ which is the best-case rate. These rates give you the ability to take part in favourable movements at the spot rate. Collar options can also potentially offer a more favourable mark-to-market than a forward contract.
When you choose a participating forward structure, it offers a secured protected rate, but still allows movement on a predetermined portion of the hedged amount. For example, if the spot rate expires at a better rate than the protected rate, then the holder of the participating forward can transact a predetermined proportion of the hedged amount at the protected rate.
Forward Extra ensures a secured and protected rate. However, you can still move up to a predetermined trigger level. If during the life of the trade, the trigger level is met or exceeded, the holder is under obligation to deal at the protected rate.
