Why delegate currency management?

A separate currency overlay can provide significant cost-saving synergies for most international investors while also mitigating operational risks.

Our dedicated currency team has an average of 19 years of hands-on currency management experience. Today, we manage close to USD 80 bn1 in tailored currency overlay and share class-hedging solutions using specialized currency risk management systems and tools.

This combination of global market knowledge, in-depth local market expertise, and state-of-the-art systems and processes allows us to offer value-added solutions for all your currency needs, including active and passive hedging.

Client-focused approach

For any currency management solution, the objectives of the client are critical to the definition of a precise strategy. We consider the ability to provide tailored and flexible currency management solutions as one of our core capabilities. Most of our mandates are customized according to specific client preferences, currency exposures and/or risk constraints. We will work with you to determine the optimal parameters for your currency-hedging program, including the best execution setup.
