This infographic shows an overview of our solutions for your foreign currency transactions. They have different hedge ratios (Y axis) and participation opportunities (X axis).

Low hedge ratio, high participation opportunity: Make payments in over 130 currencies directly from your account or carry out transactions using a foreign currency account. Buy or sell currencies in E-Banking via spots, forwards, swaps or limit orders with real-time price information.

High hedge ratio, low participation opportunity: The most popular solution is UBS Flexible FX Forward. Just like a standard forward, it allows you to fix the exchange rate in advance. However, it gives you more flexibility because you can withdraw partial amounts as and when you need them.

High hedge ratio, high participation opportunity: We enable professional investors to achieve the ideal mix of hedging and/or participation with tailor-made options.
