A Currency Swap is a foreign exchange derivative that can allow a company to enter into a foreign market with the benefit of domestic rates in the respective country. Businesses that trade internationally protect themselves from currency fluctuations by entering into complex hedging agreements with their Bank.
Currency Swaps can be very flexible with long-term maturities; however, lack of transparency around pricing can often lead to higher costs. Currency hedging products take many forms, such as Caps, Options and Puts, and can be extremely complex, often making them unsuitable.
The complexity of a Currency Swap can often make it difficult to identify whether it was mis-sold, our experienced team will be able to pinpoint the viability of any potential claim.
