What is an FX Margin Call?

Foreign Exchange Margin Calls and Collateral Request

Banks and FX brokers will often provide an FX hedging facility which include variation credit.

This allows a client to secure FX hedges for risk management without paying an upfront deposit.

The client then settles the hedging trades at specific dates or over a period of time.

The bank of FX broker will often provide a level of variation credit. This is either a percentage of the total outstanding contracts or a specific amount.

If the live market moves beyond the variation credit limits, at that stage the credit teams of banks and FX brokers may issue a collateral request or margin call. This request asks the client to place deposit funds on account as collateral against the FX hedges.

As a result, it’s a good exercise to ensure you’re receiving the most favourable credit terms when placing FX hedges in order to minimise the risk of tying up corporate funds is margin call deposits, which could otherwise be used more productively in the business.
