Protect your business continuity

Accidental injuries, illnesses and disability cause loss of income and may threat business continuity or a family's livelihood. Swinging fixed-income and foreign exchange markets too may bring unexpected costs and affect your company's financial performance. How have you prepared for contingencies?

"Prepare for contingencies that may undermine the viability of your business. We can offer you comprehensive solutions for the management of personnel, interest rate and currency risks." Paula Ahonen, Sales Manager, OP

Business always involves risks. An increase in interest rates may have a significant impact on loan interest expenses. Personnel risks too may affect a company's business in case an entrepreneur's of key employee's work contribution is lost.

A company can hedge against changes in interest rates for loans used for business financing through various interest rate hedges linked to the loan or separate interest rate derivatives.

Companies engaged in international trade are advised to prepare for exchange rate changes and hedge against them.

OP provides your company with a variety of options to hedge against risks. More information can be found below.

Whenever your company enters into a sales contract in a foreign currency, your company exposes to foreign exchange risk. Exchange rate risk arises at the time of making a binding contract or offer and ends after the currency exchange or currency hedging.

We provide flexible and effective solutions for foreign exchange trading and hedging against exchange rate risks.
