Hedging has never been easier
What we’ve learned from visiting 150+ corporate clients: Hedging currency risks properly is no easy task.
Most internationally active companies work with orders and invoices that are changing constantly. This results in fluctuating exposures that are difficult to fully hedge.
No hedging policy
Many companies either work without a hedging policy or don’t know if their hedging targets are being met. So, it’s hard to tell how exposed the company actually is.
Excel sheets are time-consuming
Treasurers typically rely on lengthy Excel sheets to calculate cash flows and exposures. This takes up a lot of valuable time and mistakes are not uncommon.
One person responsible
Usually, only one person is in charge of hedging. In most cases, no one else can take over when they are out of the office.
These problems can lead to:
Considerable losses due to unhedged positions. Actual costs of hedging being much higher than anticipated.Read more about this in our whitepaper

Ways of work
We found two common methods of hedging and automated them..
Each individual invoice or order is hedged separately. Easytrade automatically recognises any changes in due dates and amounts and re-hedges accordingly.
Forecasted cash flows are used to determine hedging without requiring underlying orders or invoices. Initial forecasts can be compared to the company’s most recent forecasted cash flows. Easytrade continuously adjust the hedges to match the company’s targeted hedge percentage or account balance.
Easytrade also allows users to manually execute individual trades (spot and forward transactions, swaps) without having to upload underlying orders or forecasts.
