Fraud Detection

Our rigorous compliance requirements protect your business from fraud. Our compliance team carefully reviews each transaction to detect inconsistencies alerting you of possible threats.

Canadian companies that deal with international manufacturers, suppliers or even overseas employees are exposed to currency exchange risk. Many companies do nothing to manage the risk and simply make mandatory payments through their bank. Olympia allows Canadian businesses to mitigate the impact of currency exchange risk on international payments.

In fact, a recent Bank of Canada publication found that publicly listed non-financial firms that use derivatives are typically more profitable and have lower volatility of earnings than those that do not use derivatives. (Bank of Canada - The Use of Financial Derivatives by Canadian Firms)

New call-to-action

Leverage foreign currency exchange tools to address to your specific business needs. Make your foreign currency exchange program work harder for you through automation of your transactions and flexible execution options. See payment & settlement methods.

FX Spot Transaction

Make an immediate transaction to buy or sell currency at the current market rate. This eliminates risk from volatile market swings. Same-day settlement is available on most major currency pairs.

Limit Orders

Buy or sell currency at a specific rate that is better than the current market rate. Limit orders are not guaranteed to execute if the rate does not reach the specified target rate before the expiry date.

Stop Orders

Buy or sell currency once the price of that currency reaches a specified level called the stop price. Stop orders are not guaranteed to execute if triggered, especially in illiquid and/or exotic currencies.

FX Outright Forwards

Buy or sell currency at the current forward rate for settlement at a specified future delivery date. Protect profit margins by securing a favorable rate today – all without tying up working capital.

FX Time Option Forwards

Leverage all the benefits of a FX Outright Forward with the added flexibility to access funds at any point in the last 90 calendar days prior to contract expiry.

 

Non-Deliverable Forwards

Hedge exposure in currencies that cannot be physically settled in the domestic currency. Used when revenues are in a controlled currency you need to bring back domestically.

Expandable Forwards

Implement a zero-cost structure offering an enhanced strike rate relative to a forward. May be suitable for companies with tighter profit margins.

Participating Forwards

Execute a zero-cost structure offering full protection against strength in the spot rate while allowing to partially benefit from unlimited weakness in the underlying spot rate.

Vanilla Call Options

Create a customized hedging strategy by accepting a premium which gives you the right, but not the obligation, to purchase currency at a predetermined rate against another at expiry.

Vanilla Put Options

Create a customized hedging strategy by accepting a premium which gives you the right, but not the obligation, to sell currency at a predetermined rate against another at expiry.

FX Collars

Hedge with a zero-cost structure constructed by purchasing a call above the forward rate and selling a put option below the forward rate.

Free up working capital with the FXG program

For Canadian export companies, foreign currency exposure can have significant impact on their bottom line, yet many companies do not actively manage their foreign currency risk. One of the most cited reasons for this is due to the capital required. To address this restriction and help with the cash flow of growing businesses, Olympia has partnered with Export Development Canada (EDC) to bring the Foreign Exchange Guarantee (FXG) program to our clients.
