Large Corporations and Multinational Companies

Corporate FX Solutions for Large Corporations and Multinational Companies

Multinational organisations by their very nature operate on a global scale. Consequently, their exposure to currency market movements is constant and the impact of these exchange rate fluctuations can be extreme, if left unaccounted for. Adopting a reactive approach to currency risk management could have a detrimental impact on their operational costs.

Adopting a proactive approach to currency risk management

Any corporate business that makes international payments regularly across multiple currency pairs will benefit from the security of knowing how much these future expenses will cost. We use our market knowledge and insight to help clients fix a price for a range of currencies for future payments, rather than simply hoping the market moves in their favour.

How we helped a multinational organisation mitigate currency risk using fx forward contracts

The Requirement

A UK based multinational aerospace corporation imports raw materials from around the world to manufacture its products. To do so, they must pay numerous international suppliers at different times. The monthly cost varies depending on the value of the orders, which is impacted by the rate of exchange when each international payment is executed. The client wants to stabilise the cost of sending money overseas, rather than relying on the unpredictable spot rate every time.

Our Approach

Our team helped them to develop a bespoke FX strategy centred around securing exchange rates for payments made up to two years in the future by using Forward Contracts. Their dedicated corporate currency specialist monitored the currency markets on their behalf, so they could lock in rates at the right time for the different currency pairs.

The Result

With the exchange rates secured for each currency pair they use to pay their different overseas suppliers; the client knows the cost of each international payment during the term of the Forward Contracts. This allows them to budget ahead with confidence.
