Spot Contracts

A spot contract is a binding obligation to buy or sell a certain amount of foreign currency at the current market rate, for settlement in two business days time. To enter into a spot deal you advise us of the amount, both currencies involved and which currency you would like to buy or sell.

Key features and benefits:
Wide range of currencies
Benefit from favourable movements in the spot rate until the deal is done
Unprotected against unfavourable movements in the spot rate until the deal is done

Forward Exchange Contract

A Forward Exchange Contract is the simplest method of covering exchange risk, without having to worry whether the spot market is going to move against you. This enables you to budget at a guaranteed rate of exchange.

Key features and benefits:
Protection against adverse movements in exchange rates
A binding obligation to deal at a specific rate
No upfront cost involved

Pricing

The price of a forward contract is based on the spot rate at the time the deal is booked, with an adjustment, which represents the interest rate differential between the two currencies concerned.

Currency Options

Currency options, also known as Foreign Exchange Derivatives, give the holder of the option the right but not the obligation to buy or sell a specific amount of currency, at a specific rate of exchange, on or before a specific future date.

Currency options allow your company to actively manage its foreign exchange exposure by providing a form of "insurance" against adverse market moves while still allowing you to benefit from any favourable market moves. Like all insurance, a premium is typically paid for that protection. That premium can be minimized or eliminated by selling an option that limits some of your upside market potential.

Currency options are used by companies wishing to protect margins while still retaining the ability to benefit from favourable market moves.

Key features and benefits:
Allow for flexible terms, can be custom tailored to your company's needs
Available for all major currencies
Can be sold back to HSBC if no longer required
Allow more active management of your company's foreign exchange exposure

Key facts Minimum deal size: USD500,000 or currency equivalent
Maximum deal size: No maximum
Period: 1 week to 5 years depending upon the currencies involved
Premium:Payable within two days of the deal being agreed
Credit line:No credit line is required for buying a standard currency option
Availability:In any currency pair where there is a liquid forward market
