FX Advisory for
Corporates and Institutions
We design bespoke, systematic FX hedging and execution solutions that help to protect profits in volatile markets
The importance of FX risk management has grown significantly over the years, driven by international expansion, heightened market volatility, and regulatory and accounting changes.
Treasurers are recognizing the need to be more active and disciplined when monitoring and managing their FX exposures, but this process can be time-consuming, stressful and overwhelming.
Without a clearly defined plan, poor decisions can undermine your organization’s profitability and credibility, as well as your own reputation with management and shareholders.
Are you tired of guessing how and when to hedge?
Without a systematic, data driven approach to currency risk management, decisions continue to be based on emotion and sentiment. This causes inconsistency in performance, and decision making fatigue.
Are you making currency purchase decisions based on speculative market forecasts?
Many firms end up trading FX based on emotion and guesswork, attempting to add value to their P&L by timing trades correctly. This approach endorses acting as an FX trader, not a risk manager, and can ‘add’ rather than reduce volatility in the income statement.
Do you find yourself regularly needing to re-negotiate terms with clients and suppliers?
Many corporates set their budget rates and execute most, if not all of their hedges for the entire year at the beginning of the fiscal calendar, without consideration for where exchange rates will be when the hedges mature. This “fire and forget” approach can create a “cliff edge” effect where company’s often need to adjust pricing with clients and suppliers or face negative impacts to their profit margins and bottom line.
Do you rely on the opinion of banks and FX brokers when making hedging decisions?
Can you trust a 3rd party who’s profitability is directly related to the product or strategy they recommend? Have you had an independent adviser review the efficacy of your risk management strategy and execution quality?

Looking for an FX advisory solution
The Bondford team would be delighted to help
Valued feedback from our clients
Over the course of a single consultancy engagement within ATP Media, Bondford provided real insight and practical advice on how to improve our management of forex risk and how to avoid the potential pitfalls in the previous policy. The Bondford team, in a sequence of very focussed meetings within the business, listened carefully to our challenges and requirements, delivered a complex analysis of our position in a way that we understood, and ultimately provided well thought through solutions that could be easily implemented. It was particularly refreshing to be able to talk through Forex strategy in an objective way with people who weren’t also trying to sell me financial products. ATP Media has been able to implement the Bondford recommendations and expects to see significant benefit going forward. We hope to continue to work with Bondford in the future.
