Alternative Currency Option(redirected from Alternative Currency Options)
Alternative Currency Option
An option contract purchased in one currency with the payoff in another currency. For example, one may buy a call option with U.S. dollars, giving one the right to buy the underlying asset in Bahraini dinars. An alternative currency option can be used to hedge the foreign exchange risk of other investments.
