How to risk-proof your business against exchange rate fluctuations

Given the increasingly global nature of business and investments, fluctuations in foreign exchange — or forex — rates now impact a vast number of businesses affecting as they do both profits and investment decisions of importers and exporters, multinational businesses, bankers and international investors. In addition, even a domestic business can face risks to its profits and market share as a result of fluctuations in foreign currency prices.

In this book, a vastly experienced banker and financial expert shows how you can risk-proof your business and profits against adverse exchange rate fluctuations, highlighting:

  • Factors that determine exchange rates;

  • How to make sense of forex rate quotations;

  • Forward rates: forward differential, premium / discount, forward rate quotations;

  • Types of forex contracts, including long-term forward contracts;

  • Foreign exchange transactions: different ways you can receive or remit forex;

  • Foreign exchange risks: what they are and how you can control them using swaps, forward rate agreements, futures and options, etc.;

  • How to forecast forex rates;

  • Plus, a glossary of important forex terms.

Many business professionals mistakenly consider foreign exchange to be a complex and arcane topic. Assuming no real prior knowledge, this book demystifies the subject making it easily understandable. The author's thrust is on clarity and usefulness; his goal — to help you understand how you can protect your business and profits from the risks of adverse foreign exchange fluctuations.
