The most commonly used foreign exchange transaction designed to address any imminent currency requirements, a spot transaction allows clients to process payments and have funds settled in the beneficiary account within the same trading day. Clients are also afforded up to two further working days to make settlement.
Forward Contracts & Hedging
Forward contracts allow clients to lock in a rate for various time periods, up to 5 years at a time depending on the liquidity provider used, offering protection from adverse currency fluctuation, mitigating the inherent risks associated with operating within a live marketplace. A 0% deposit facility enables our clients to offset their currency exposure, even if they have limited cashflow or capital without the need for any margin committed.
ECAP is proud to boast a team of experienced dealers with expert market knowledge and many years of professional trading experience. Your dedicated dealer will help you identify and implement a hedging strategy that best suits your organisation and is tailored to achieve your objectives. They will consider your company budget, payment timescale, risk appetite, cash flow and the current market trends. We work proactively with our clients to mitigate risk in a perennially volatile market.
A very useful set of tools when used appropriately, market orders allow a client to designate a desired rate to provide them with upside on the current market level while also offering a safety net to the downside to ensure that bottom line profits are adequately protected. Orders include but are not limited to; limit orders, stop-losses and trailing stop-losses.
We offer market commentary in the form of daily, weekly and monthly reports, supplementing the personalised commentary and consultancy that all clients can access via their dedicated dealer.
