FX Time Option Forward

Mitigate your forex volatility risk in a more flexible way

Hedge against exchange rate volatility and protect your business with DBS FX Time Option Forwards. An FX time option forward fixes the exchange rate between two currencies for an agreed period of time, whether it’s days, months or years. You can utilise the rate at any given time before the option ends, regardless of the prevailing market rate on that day.


For example, if you receive payments in USD that need to be converted to IDR, you stand to lose money if the USD depreciates. However, with an FX time option forward, you are able to lock in an agreed rate, and have the flexibility to sell your USD at the agreed rate whenever you want during an agreed period of time, thereby reducing the risk or FX impact to your bottom line.
