  • Limiting the foreign exchange risk related to currency volatility,
  • Properly identifying currency trading circuits.

Protection from foreign exchange risks

Whether it is a draft for a supplier, a payment for a delivery outside the euro zone or salary payments in «exotic» currencies, there is a foreign exchange risk at every step of the production chain.

To protect you against this risk of loss, we have created a very wide range of currency hedging instruments designed to eliminate or to mitigate fluctuations in currency prices, depending on your management objectives.

From conventional foreign exchange transactions to the most complex structured transactions, our experts have a set of products to meet your needs. These instruments can be used in a wide array of currencies.

In addition, we offer you access to its SG MARKETS digital platform that includes many pre and post trade services, including MyHedge. This service allows you to manage your FX risks and to check in live the hedging strategy’s efficiency according to various market move scenarios.

A firm grasp of payment circuits

This is essential for any business wishing to get the most from their international relationships.

Our experts can help you increase your competitive edge in the following ways : whether you want to reduce the number of players involved, familiarise yourself with the regulations in effect, take advantage of competitive rates and management tools or simplify your processes, our experts are there to help you increase your competitive edge whilst guaranteeing dependable relationships with your financial partners worldwide.
