Currency Futures

Russellstone Treasury acts as an advisory agent in Currency Futures on Yield-X within the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE). At RussellStone Treasury we facilitate trading in currency futures for our clients on Yield-X. Because of high liquidity, the currency future has become a valuable tool that enables anyone who is exposed to currency risk in their business or in a personal capacity, to manage this risk effectively on a daily basis. Companies can utilize Currency Futures to hedge future exposure without requiring any supporting documentation at a fraction of the cost of a Forward Exchange Contract (FEC) offered by a bank. Individuals can use Currency Futures to hedge their annual foreign investment allowance when a favourable rate is available but the timing of the investment might not be right.
