Our treasury sales team offers clients various products to hedge currency exposures, such as:

  • Options
  • Forwards
  • Flexi-forwards
  • Participating Forwards
  • TARFs, and others

Electronic Trading (e-FX)

Currently, CBD is developing an e-trading platform for corporate, commercial, and private client hedgers and traders. Under this platform, clients will be able to log in with a unique user ID and trade usual currency requirements instantly any time, any day (excluding Saturdays and Sundays for non-GCC currencies). Precious metals will also be available and trades can be transacted instantly for spot, forward, or time option forward FX deals.
