Hedging is a strategy to protect against fluctuating exchange rates. Our customers typically hedge in two ways :

1. Cashflow Hedge

This occurs where customers hedge against an incoming receipt or outgoing payment in another currency. The hedge gives certainty of the cashflow in the native currency, which is not effected by any change in exchange rates.

Examples of uses include

  • Hedging of annual stock purchases, to give certainty over pricing
  • Profits from a foreign subsidiary
  • Repayments of loans in other currencies

2. Fair Value Hedges

Fair value hedges are used for non-GBP assets and liabilities in a customers balance sheet that need to be restated at closing rates at each reporting date.

Examples of uses include

  • The carrying value of loans in other currencies
  • The acquisition cost of a foreign investment
