- Non-deliverable forward is a currency forward, where the actual exchange of amounts in purchased/sold currencies does not take place
- Counterparties agree on settlement in one of the two currencies of the relevant currency pair – so–called reference currency
- One or two working days (depending on the given currency) prior to the transaction settlement the settlement amount in reference currency is calculated based on the difference between current spot exchange rate and previously agreed forward exchange rate
- Net position is then settled in the reference currency – by the short (by the party in disadvantageous position)
- Par forward is a set of currency forwards that differ in a single parameter – maturity date

Example of risk
Please review our model transaction:
- Client enters into a currency forward with its bank
- Client sells EUR 1 million, buying CZK, with transaction settlement in 1 month
Agreed exchange rate: 27.950
As of the settlement date, the current spot exchange rate is 28.000.
- If executed as speculation, the client incurred a loss of CZK 50,000
- If executed as hedging, the client views the loss as the cost of hedging
- Hedging protects clients from significant exchange rate fluctuations that would result in their serious financial problems
- As of the settlement date, the current spot exchange rate is 28.000.
