Foreign Exchange Risk Management Strategies
Protect yourself and your profits
If you’re an international business, you need a foreign exchange risk management plan to ensure your cash flows run smoothly. You already know that risk management is essential to your success, so choose a foreign exchange partner who understands your exposure.
Your foreign exchange risk management strategy could mean the difference between profit and loss
If you’ve signed contracts for payments or receipts in foreign currencies, your business will be exposed to potential currency fluctuations over the course of the year or even within a single day. (Remember, the pound sterling (GBP) dropped 10% in one day after the 2016 Brexit vote.)
OFX understands that you need to be able to have a predictable cash flow while being able to profit from advantageous currency movements. That’s why we offer a variety of products, so you can choose the level of exposure that’s right for your business.
OFX Risk Management Solutions:
- Forward Contract: Protect your business from sudden market shifts by securing an exchange rate for up to 12 months using our Forward Contract. This may help you protect your business from adverse currency fluctuations by delivering reliable rates of exchange.
- Limit Orders: If you’re flexible on the date of delivery for your funds, you can use our Limit Orders, because the day you receive your funds may not be the best day to transfer your money. Use a Limit Order to select a rate that works best for your business. When the rate is right, we transfer your funds automatically, so you don’t have to worry about missing out.
- FX Options: With an option, you can secure the right, but not the obligation, to make a foreign currency transaction at a predetermined rate of exchange on a set date in the future. Protect yourself from unfavourable movements while positioning yourself to take advantage of favourable opportunities.
