Common hedging instruments
Forward conversion operations – client’s obligation to buy or sell foreign currency at the rate that was fixed at the time of the transaction, the settlement of which shall not take place earlier than three working days from the date of its conclusion. For instance, a company is obtaining loans in US dollars (they become obligations in foreign currency), whereas it is earning revenues in tenge. In a given situation, if the company wants to insure itself against possible losses caused by US dollar appreciation, it concludes the forward to purchase US dollars. The company no longer depends on exchange rate fluctuations and knows exactly how much tenge must be prepared by the repayment date. A similar situation exists for a company that is an exporter, earns revenues in foreign currency and wants to insure itself against possible losses caused by the currency depreciation.
