Non-deliverable forward (NDF)

A non-deliverable forward is a foreign exchange derivatives contract whereby two parties agree to exchange cash at a given spot rate on a future date. The contract is settled in a widely traded currency, such as the US dollar, rather than the original currency. NDFs are primarily used for hedging or speculating in currencies with trade restrictions, such as China’s yuan or India’s rupee.
