For example, a hard loan from a lender in Cambodia to a borrower in Thailand may be denominated in U.K. pounds sterling because it is a stronger and more stable currency than either of the other countries' currencies.
Why it Matters:
Although a hard loan is exposed to exchange-rate risk, a hard loan substantially reduces the risk that would exist if the loan were denominated in either of the less-stable local currencies.
