Foreign exchange

Making and receiving payments in foreign currencies is a fact of everyday business when trading with overseas customers and suppliers.

This brings with it risks and opportunities that you can manage directly using forward foreign exchange contracts or our Arena online foreign exchange and money market platform.

Forward exchange contracts

Forward exchange contracts allow you to buy and sell currencies in advance, at fixed exchange rates, so you can guarantee the value of future transactions.
