More Information


Value Date
Value date refers to the date on which actual exchange of funds i.e. payment/receipt takes place. Funds can only be used when they are credited with "good value". Foreign Exchange (FX) rates are generally quoted on a spot basis.

Spot Transactions
An FX spot transaction is a deal in which you and the Bank agree to exchange agreed-upon amounts of two different currencies at an agreed exchange rate for settlement in 2-good business day. Spot rates can be adjusted to provide for transactions taking place today or tomorrow. These transactions are known as "Value Today" or "Value Tomorrow".

Forward Transactions
A forward transaction is an agreement between you and the Bank, which is agreed today, to exchange agreed-upon amounts of two different currencies at an agreed-upon rate/price for delivery on an agreed future date.

FX Swaps
An FX swap is a pair of currency transactions, one for purchase and one for sale, for two different value dates, one of which is spot.
