More about hedging solutions

Any corporate that operates internationally must manage exposure to risk. At ING, our Financial Markets Global Corporate Sales Team provides customised hedging solutions so that our corporate clients can mitigate risk and enhance the predictability of their cash flow. Our team of nearly 80 professionals worldwide work closely with product specialists who have an in-depth knowledge on specific asset classes. We are keen to discuss your points of interest to develop a preferred hedging strategy.

Foreign exchange risk management: tailored solutions that fit your underlying FX exposure, risk profiles and views.

Interest rate risk management: optimising fixed/floating and/or debt currency mix and pre-hedging or new issue swap solutions as part of risk management.

Commodity hedging: as a leading commodity hedge provider, we support the entire value chain.

In addition to these three principal risks, we can also offer hedging solutions for inflation, credit and equity derivatives. We are always fully aligned with our corporate clients, transaction services and the sector approach. Our award-winning multi-asset risk analysis tool is tailored to provide corporates a quantitative angle to all your hedging policy discussions.

We also offer an InsideBusiness Financial Markets module: easily and securely initiate all your foreign exchange and money market transactions at real time rates.
