Our products and services

FX Spot

Make international payments and exchange one currency for another at the current exchange rate.

Forward exchange contract and time options

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

FX Time options are just like forward contracts but rather than settling on one specific date in the future, to give flexibility, you can specify a start date and an end date for the contract and you can draw down against that contract anytime within the two dates.

FX options

Premium and non-premium payable contracts which offer partial or full-participation in favourable market moves.

Limit options

Place an order to exchange your money if an agreed target rate is struck.
