When compared, the cost of funding from a Foreign Currency Loan was 32 lacs lower than that of a term loan.

Fearing the exchange rate risk, the client wanted to hedge all of the interest payments and principal amount too, the annualized cost of which would’ve been around 4% which is too high because in 3 years’ time the rupee depreciation is around 3% (based on an “Annualized Premium and Rupee Change Comparative Analysis” by Myforexeye Research Team). This would ultimately lead to a bad risk reward ratio.
