Foreign Exchange Non-Deliverable Forwards Course Overview
Some nations choose to protect their currency by disallowing trading on the international foreign exchange market, typically to prevent exchange rate volatility. Market participants can use non-deliverable forwards (“NDFs”) to transact in these non-convertible currencies. In this course, we will discuss how traders may use NDFs to manage and hedge against foreign exchange exposure. We will also take a look at various product structures, such as par forwards and historic rate rollovers. Lastly, we will outline several ways to negate or cancel an existing forward position that is no longer needed.
