Foreign Exchange Tools

​Foreign Wires and Drafts 

Pay foreign invoices in their respective currencies, and redeem payments from foreign companies. 

​Forward Contracts 

Eliminate foreign exchange risk by "locking in" the U.S. dollar value of your foreign payables and receivables prior to their actual payment or receipt. 

​Options Contracts 

Secure your right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell a foreign currency at a predetermined rate within a specified time to protect yourself against adverse currency movements.
