Currency Risk Management

While international markets offer exciting growth opportunities for U.S. businesses, currency volatility can take a serious toll on cash flow and earnings.

We offer a wide array of currency hedging solutions in more than 100 currencies to protect you against foreign exchange rate fluctuations.

From forward trades to options contracts, we provide the tools to help your company minimize currency risk. Our specialists will take the time to understand your company’s objectives, and help you devise a strategy to fit your risk tolerance and needs.

Spot, forwards, and options

We offer a wide range of services to help you manage your foreign exchange rate risk.

  • Spot: Buy or sell a foreign currency at today's rate for settlement within two business days.
  • Forward contracts: Lock in a currency rate for settlement on a future date. Forwards can be for a fixed date or range of dates and can be settled on a deliverable or non-deliverable basis.
  • Currency options: Pay a premium for the right but not the obligation to buy or sell a currency at a set rate until a certain time.
  • Loans: Our multi-currency loans allow you to borrow in other currencies at the foreign country's interest rates.
  • Cross-currency Swaps: Swap debt in one currency to another currency to hedge your foreign assets and liabilities.

Multi-currency deposits/foreign currency accounts

We offer time deposits in all major currencies that pay interest in the local currency to help you manage your foreign cash flows. In addition, our foreign currency accounts make it possible to collect and disburse funds abroad without converting to U.S. dollars.

Foreign banknotes and travelers cheques

If you’re going abroad on business or as a tourist, we can provide the international currencies that you need to travel with ease. We’ll deliver most currencies and travelers cheques to you within one business day.
