What is foreign exchange risk?

Foreign exchange risk refers to the risk that an international financial transaction may incur due to exchange rate fluctuations. Also known as exchange rate risk or FX risk market, it describes the possibility that a business’ financial investment’s value may be impacted due to the relative value of the currencies involved.

How does increased foreign exchange risk affect businesses?

Foreign exchange risk can affect businesses that trade in international markets and also small and medium-sized enterprises. The foreign exchange market is extremely volatile, and this poses increased risks that fall into three categories: transaction exposure, translation exposure, and economic exposure. Transaction exposure arises from the effect that exchange rate fluctuations have on a company’s obligations to make or receive payments denominated in foreign currency. Translation exposure occurs when currency fluctuations affect a company’s consolidated financial statements. Lastly, economic exposure arises when unanticipated exchange rate changes affect a company’s future cash flows and market value. StoneX Pro’s highly experienced risk management specialists can help you lessen the impact of FX risks by creating and executing a tailored risk management plan.

How do FX forwards work?

An FX forward, or currency forward, is a customized contract between two parties in the FX market that locks in the exchange rate for the purchase or sale of a currency on a future date. FX forward contracts are used to hedge foreign currency exchange risk. Since FX forwards are not traded on an exchange, they do not require any upfront margin payment.

What is an FX hedge?

The purpose of a forex hedge is to protect profits against fluctuations in the currencies they’re exposed to, either to the upside or downside. Forex hedging transfers the foreign exchange risk from the business to the entity who agrees to take on the risk.

How can I hedge FX risk to my business?

FX risk can be hedged through a variety of vehicles, including spot FX, forwards, swaps and non-deliverable forwards. StoneX’s ability to act as our clients’ only counterparty allows us to negotiate complex trades and removes the need for clients to enlist multiple prime brokers and liquidity providers.

What are some ways I can hedge my interest rate risk?

StoneX offers our customers a wide variety of interest rate products to help you manage risk to profitability posed by interest rate risk, including: 

  • Interest rate swaps 
  • Interest rate caps and floors 
  • Hybrid swaps and options 
  • Cap spreads 
  • Dynamic hedging
  • What is interest rate risk?

    Interest rate risk is a function of your exposure to future moves in interest rates, especially when borrowing at a floating rate. For example, a company may borrow at a floating rate, and then use various strategies to hedge against rising rates.
