FX spot contract 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 business days.

Spot rates can be adjusted to provide for currency exchange taking place today or tomorrow. These transactions are known as "Value Today" or "Value Tomorrow".

Spot rates can also be adjusted for currency exchange taking place at an agreed future date beyond 2 business days, such as 3 months later. These transactions are known as FX forward transactions.

FX time option contract, also known as flexible forward, allows currency exchange to take place any time up to the maturity date of the FX time option. It gives you the flexibility in having the date for currency exchange while locking in an agreed exchange rate.

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

To apply, all corporations have to set up an FX Line with the Bank. The FX line states the maximum amount and tenor that you may contract at any one time.


If your business currently has credit facilities (e.g. Letter of Credit, Trust Receipts or Overdraft line) with the Bank, you can arrange with your banker to restructure the credit line to accommodate the additional FX facility by earmarking a portion of the existing facilities.
