Foreign Exchange Risk

Companies often have to deal with foreign currencies, exposing themselves to the risk of unfavorable market moves.

Companies should have a strategic approach to this risk, firstly defining a policy and then building hedging strategies that are suitable to the profile of the company, to its business and available instruments.

IMF helps its clients eliminate or reduce the foreign exchange risk resulting from their business activity. We construct tailor-made solutions and help with their implementation, if required.

Generally speaking, even if adaptive to the needs of each client, IMF consulting services in foreign exchange markets are based in some key points:

  • Assessment of the foreign exchange risk exposure profile and joint definition of strategy and course of action.
  • Information on financial markets: Daily reports by e-mail, fax (please see here examples) and SMS.
  • Exclusive access to the page www.imf.pt with foreign exchange quotes and real time charts, news and updated information regarding other subjects.
  • Phone “hotline”, available to questions about financial markets that are relevant for the company.
  • Free training for clients in financial instruments and principles of market behavior.


Besides these global services to all clients, IMF also performs in accordance to each company by a personalized service, with:

  • Last minute reports - whenever there is any event likely to cause changes in the markets, last minute reports will be written, followed by an immediate phone call. All of this accordingly with the risk portfolio of each client.
