    Example of a forward

    Client – an exporter made a contract in Euros for the sale of machine equipment with a delivery date in 6 months. The Client entres the cost in CZK, using the current exchange rate for calculating the future exchange rate. The Client is now, from the moment of setting the price of the product, until the delivery date exposed to risk of CZK strengthening against the Euro. If CZK is stronger in 6 months, i.e. the exchange rate will have a lower value, the Client will receive a smaller amount of crowns for the amount in Euros than expected (originally calculated).

    With an insured future exchange rate, a company gains an effective instrument for financial planning (a calculation rate) and can minimize potential risks. For this purpose instruments for insuring the exchange rate are used: forward contracts.
