Treasury & Foreign Exchange

Our Treasury team combines market experience and specialist expertise to support our customers with all their foreign exchange needs.

Timely and trusted

We understand that speed and transparency of pricing are essential when trading foreign exchange (FX) and we deliver both efficiently. Our robust balance sheet is also a continued source of reassurance to our customers.

Expertise and experience

With deep knowledge of international currency markets, our specialists will work closely with you to understand your requirements. We are active in FX markets and keep abreast of market trends; this can help inform your decisions, and we remain on hand to execute your trades. We can also help you devise hedging strategies and mitigate exchange-rate risk.

Choice and control

Accounts are available in several denominations, allowing you to hold and trade foreign currency. We provide:

  • FX forward contracts for known future events; these agree a currency-conversion rate for settlement at a later date;
  • limit orders, which allow us to execute trades for you (inside and outside UK trading hours) if the rate moves favourably and hits your chosen level;
  • stop-loss orders, which allow us to execute trades for you (inside and outside UK trading hours) if the rate moves against you and hits your chosen level.

(Limit orders and stop-loss orders are tradable in Asian, European and North American sessions.)

Intelligent insights

Experts in the fast-moving world of foreign exchange, our Treasury team puts together a weekly Treasury Market Commentary summarising market sentiment and providing valuable insight into geopolitical events and expected developments in global currencies. While this does not constitute investment advice, it is a key source of inspiration and guidance for many of our customers.
