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.
