DEFINITION
Pre-Settlement Risk

"Pre-settlement risk": Pre-settlement risk is the risk that one party to a contract becomes insolvent before delivering its side of the contract. For treasurers it is vital that hedging counterparties remain solvent for the duration of the hedging contract – otherwise the hedge evaporates. A similar risk occurs in commercial contracts. Customers may become insolvent before paying for goods, and supplier insolvency may threaten production schedules.
