Window Forward Contracts
The world is not a perfect place – so it's often challenging to determine exactly when a payment will take place. Production or shipment dates, the conclusion of legal matters, and invoice discounting all can impact when payments are released.
Yet even when settlement dates are not certain, it is still possible to hedge foreign currency transactions by the use of a Window Forward contract.
Window Forward contracts work in same manner that forward contracts do with one exception: allowing the settlement over a period of time rather than one specific date – giving you more flexibility and convenience.
