Dealing and delivery

Your business can depend on our experience and expertise when making international payments. We help you optimise your position and reduce the risks associated with currency fluctuations and volatile exchange rates.

Spot contracts

For immediate settlement: A spot transaction is the buying or selling of a foreign currency or commodity at an exchange rate that is agreed upon on when the trade is initialised. Spot trades are normally settled within two working days.

Forward contracts

For an agreed date in the future: A forward contract secures an exchange rate for an agreed time in the future. This contract could cover just one or multiple payments on different dates. By booking forward, one is obliged to buy or sell the currency at the agreed price, on a specified future date. You can fix an exchange rate for up to one year in advance, thereby removing your currency risk by locking in your exchange rate for a future date.

Incoming currency

Incoming wires can be received and converted for you. We provide a facility to hold your currency in its original state until you are ready to convert the funds, so you are not forced to take the current price. 

Cross currency

We can quote you a price to convert one foreign currency to another, without converting funds into your local currency. This allows you to avoid any unnecessary transaction costs.
