Currency options is a major means of reducing customers' currency risk exposure.
It is a derivative transaction when a customer buys from the Bank the right to buy or sell a fixed amount of one currency for another currency at a certain exchange rate on a certain day in the future (European type option). The customer shall not be obliged to exercise the option, i.e. if the market environment changes, he can ignore the option and buy or sell the currency at the market rate should it prove more favorable at that moment. When buying the option, the customer shall pay the Bank a premium not to be refunded if the customer fails to exercise the option
The service is offered to legal entities (both residents and non-residents).
