Foreign Exchange Services

Our Solutions

Meet your global opportunities with insights, solutions and support from our dedicated Foreign Exchange Advisors.¹ 

Forward Contracts

Forward contracts provide a locked-in currency rate today, for settlement in the future, allowing you to protect your sales margins.

Forward "window" contracts provide a range, or window, of delivery dates providing more flexibility for your cash flow.

Options Contracts

Options contracts function similarly to forward contracts, but do not require the obligation to settle. An upfront premium is required for options contracts, but there are ways to structure options to mitigate premium costs.

Foreign Currency Deposit Accounts

City National's Foreign Currency Deposit Accounts allow you to make and receive payments in foreign currencies so you can take advantage of favorable exchange rates.

Currency Linked Certificate of Deposit (CD)

A currency linked CD offers the possibility of a higher yield deposit depending on the market price of a currency.

Dual Currency Investment

A dual currency investment offers a potentially higher return over traditional deposits, with the holder repaid in a currency outside of their preference — most helpful when there is a consistent need for two different currencies.
