Ratio Forward

Overview

A Ratio Forward provides you with an “Enhanced Rate” of exchange on up to 100% of your exposure, at rates better than the current forward rate available in the market.

If at expiry, the spot rate is above the Enhanced Rate then you receive the Enhanced Rate on 100% of the agreed exposure. If, however, the spot rate is below the Enhanced Rate, a pre-agreed ratio (e.g. 50%) is secured at that Enhanced Rate while the remainder may be dealt at the prevailing spot market rate.
