How it Works


if you receive payments in USD that need to be converted to CNY, you stand to lose money if the USD depreciates. However, with an FX time option forward, you are able to lock in an agreed rate, and have the flexibility to sell your USD at the agreed rate whenever you want during an agreed period of time, thereby reducing the risk or FX impact to your bottom line.
