FX TIME OPTION-Forward contract with possibility of execution during the pre-defined period

The minimum amount of transaction is in the value or in other currency equivalent of EUR 50,000 with maximum tenor from 3 to 180 days
- Whether the conversion is performed the first or the last day of the agreed time period the client pays the same price.
- Possibility to hedge against FX risk in case you don’t now the exact day of payment / inflow
