Q&A from the live webinar

Q1: There has been a lot of talk about China looking to make more transactions in RMB going forward than USD. Indonesia also would like to reduce its USD reliance. How do you handle risk around the "exotics"?

A1: HedgeFlows Team: Chinese Renminbi (RMB) has long become one of the most frequently traded currencies globally and, for all practicalities, has lost its “exotic” status. The recent talk indeed highlights China's intentional move away from the US dollar reliance and some other countries, but China has been pursuing the “internalisation” of their currency for almost a decade. RMB is now one of the most traded currencies in the world - after US dollars, Euros, Japanese Yen and Pounds Sterling and ahead of other “developed” currencies such as Australian and Canadian dollars, for example (according to the data from the Bank of International Settlements). While China has kept certain currency controls (mainly to prevent capital outflow from the country), paying Chinese suppliers in their currencies is certainly a viable option and managing currency risks of RMB can be done in the same way as most other currencies. As for other, more “exotic” currencies (South African Rand or Indian Rupee) - their risk also can be managed in a manner similar to developed currencies or, in some cases - using so-called non-deliverable forwards.
