Spot contract

You need to make a transfer immediately. We quote you the exchange rate on the day and the price you will receive. Your trade is then booked into the market. This simple transaction is referred to as a spot contract and we often see customers using this for single, adhoc and regular payments. You can do this online or over the phone.

Set a date or a rate for the future

You have a particular amount of money, perhaps a large amount and you want to get the best rate possible or secure a particular rate to guarantee a price. Here are our two most popular methods of transferring your money.

1. Forward contract

If you have future currency exposure, you can exchange currency at a fixed rate on a date in the future (up to one year in advance and a deposit maybe required)

2. Currency options

Another way of managing future currency exposure is to buy an option. This allows you to choose whether to trade at the option rate or the rate on the day. A premium is required to enter this contract. 

Need guidance on what option suits you and how to manage your exposure? Talk to our team of dedicated Account Managers today, call 0333 123 1815
