Window Forward Contracts

If an importer or exporter is having difficulty estimating the future settlement date of receivables or obligations, they can always use hedging in the form of a window forward contract.

Window Forward contracts are based on the same principle as forward contracts, i.e. a precisely defined amount insured by a fixed exchange rate, with the sole exception that the settlement date is variable. The settlement date agreed in advance with a forward is replaced by a three- week interval (1 week before and 2 weeks after the settlement date), during which the currency can be exchanged on any business day at the rate agreed in advance.
This instrument also enables companies to make better use of a fixed rate during calculations in their financial planning.

EXAMPLE
Importer client:
On 30 June, the client purchased goods from a supplier in the value of EUR 100,000 with a delivery period of 3 months. At the same time, they do not know exactly the date the payment for these goods will be made, and do not wish to be exposed to risk of exchange rate trends. On 30 June the client agrees on a forward rate with a settlement period from 26 September to 14 October, when they can purchase Euros on any business day, however no later than 14 October.
