A forward contract allows you to enter into a contract at the current market rate for payment in the future and is useful for protecting you from adverse market movements. Particularly useful if you want to lock in a favourable rate, but don’t have the funds available to pay for the contract immediately.

All forward contracts are subject to a minimum amount and payment of an initial margin to secure the obligation. Variation margin may be requested if significant adverse market movements occur during the term of the contract.

Forward contracts in 15 currencies

Real time competitive forward rates

1 week to six months

Ability to pre-deliver or extend forward contracts


Not happy with the current exchange rate?

No problem. You can place a Market Order to target a predetermined rate that you would like to achieve and we’ll monitor it for you. Market Orders allow customers to target a rate they wish to transact at that is either better than the current market rate to capture positive movements or worse than the current market rate to protect against adverse movements. All Market Orders are free to use.

We provide an online facility for our clients to place, modify, and cancel Market Orders. Clients can also view the savings or cost differences between the current market rate and order rates. Orders offered include limit and stops, for both spot and forward requirements, and OCO's (One Cancels the Other).

Take the stress out of watching the market rate fluctuate and let us take care of it. You can add, cancel or amend orders

during our hours of operation (Open 18:30 GMT Sunday through 19:00 GMT Friday)

and they will automatically be executed 24 hours a day if the market reaches the agreed rate, at which point you have entered into a binding contract. Market Orders are always live until cancelled by you.
