  • Create a hedge to protect against currency rate fluctuations
  • Reduce the risk of exchange rate losses when paying and/or receiving currency

International Wire Transfer

  • Payments are electronically transmitted to your overseas account or to your designated trade partner.
  • Foreign currency payments are cleared through one of our correspondent banks.

Foreign Draft

  • Payments are made in check form denominated in foreign currency.

Hedge Transactions

An FX Hedge Transaction, or Forward Contract, is an agreement between your company and BB&T in which BB&T commits to buy or sell a foreign currency against US dollars, or another foreign currency, at a specific exchange rate for a fixed settlement date or window of dates in the future.

These contracts allow your company to lock in your imported goods costs and to fix your yield on receivables, while also offering a means to protect currency-sensitive balance sheet items.
