Predictability, accurate forecasting and preventing unexpected currency losses are the main reasons your business will employ a hedging strategy.
If you make regular imports or pay suppliers in foreign currencies, shifts in the FX market could result in fluctuating costs. Working with the Caxton strategic hedging desk, your business can manage exposure with a selection of Forward contracts or FX Options.
Transfer your risk, forecast with ease and protect your profits.
The solution to currency market volatility and its impact on cash flow uncertainty is hedging. Simply put, hedging means transferring currency in such a way as to limit your exposure to volatility in the market, which can be a mix of SPOT, Forwards and FX options
A forward contract lets you lock in an exchange rate for a period of up to 12 months
Lock in a rate for a date in the future but still benefit if the market moves in your favour
An effective FX risk management strategy means you can protect your profits whilst focusing on the day-to-day running of your business
