Currency Risk Management

Clydesdale Bank can help you manage your exposure to currency fluctuations

Business customers who trade overseas and require more certainty over fluctuating exchange rates, can benefit from our Currency Risk Management solutions.

Our solutions could help you protect your business by hedging your potential currency exposure. With either premium based or no up-front premium options, and flexible maturity dates, our structures are adaptable and can be tailored to fit your needs.

Please be aware that there are certain foreign exchange and currency, interest rate and commodity products offered by Treasury Solutions that may prevent, either in part or full, the opportunity to benefit from any favourable changes in the underlying market.

Trading of a speculative nature is strictly prohibited.

Our Currency Risk Management solutions feature the following:

  • Certainty against adverse currency movements beyond a defined rate
  • Benefit from favourable rate moves on certain products
  • Flexible to suit your business needs
  • No credit facility required for certain structures
Important facts

The minimum deal size is £100,000. There is no maximum deal limit.

Currency Risk Management may adversely affect the exchange rates you pay, and may not be suitable for your business. You should understand and consider the circumstances in which you may have to pay a worse exchange rate than the prevailing market rate, and what this may mean for your business and cashflow
