Currency volatility and hedging choices

Presented by

Francesca Fornasari, Head of Currency Solutions

About this talk

After a 15-year rally in the value of the US dollar, many non-US investors have experienced significant currency gains on their US assets. Over the medium term, there is a risk that this trend will reverse, making this a good point to review currency hedging policies to lock in these gains. A dynamic hedging programme has several advantages over a static hedging programme and should be cashflow generative over the medium term, relieving pressure on collateral pools. For pension funds, a sharp reversal in the US dollar could result in a meaningful deterioration in funding if assets are left unhedged.
