If you’re considering how you can control and reduce your exposure to risk, Barclays can offer you an extensive range of services to help you manage this to an acceptable level for your business.

There are a number of factors to bear in mind when managing your interest rate and foreign exchange risk.

Managing your interest rate exposure

Key areas for businesses to consider include:

  • Protecting against unexpected interest rate increases or volatility in short-term borrowing
  • Managing fixed and floating liabilities
  • Locking in financing costs ahead of funding
  • Diversifying exposure away from floating rate exposure

Managing your FX risk

  • Protect against adverse currency market fluctuations
  • Manage your balance sheet exposure
  • Know more about emerging market currencies
  • Develop a Treasury policy with the assistance of detailed market insight
  • Manage contingent/uncertain foreign exchange exposures
