Hedging has never been easier

What we learned

What we’ve learned from visiting 200+ corporate clients: Hedging currency risks properly is no easy task.

Easytrade Circle

Ever-changing exposures

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.

Standard

Upload Excel sheets

Many of our clients start out by uploading Excel sheets to become more familiar with Easytrade.
Level 2

One-way ERP Connection

Importing order or invoice data made possible without the use of Excel sheets.
Level 3

Two-way ERP Connection

Clients with greater volumes of order flows tend to choose for a direct, two-way ERP connection. This allows them to automatically transfer order, invoice or hedging data back-and-forth between Easytrade and their ERP software.

Ways of work

We found two common methods of hedging and automated them..

One-to-one

Each individual invoice or order is hedged separately. Easytrade automatically recognises any changes in due dates and amounts and re-hedges accordingly.

Forecast-based

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.

Manual trades

Easytrade also allows users to manually execute individual trades (spot and forward transactions, swaps) without having to upload underlying orders or forecasts.

Also available: Manual trades.
