Currency risk – hedge in May and go away?

BNP Paribas Asset Management

Join Adnan and Momtchil for our 23 May webcast

Should investors hedge their currency exposure? Does active currency management add value?

Active currency management can be a consistent source of return that is measurable using performance metrics similar to those used for asset classes such as equities and bonds.

Join Adnan Akant, Head of Currencies, and Momtchil Pojarliev, Deputy Head of Currencies, for a live 30-minute webcast on topics including:

  • currencies as an investment asset class
  • active hedging as a good trade in May
  • smart beta and active manager performance
  • their expectations for currencies.

When: Wednesday, 23 May

What time: 10:00 US Eastern / 15:00 GMT / 16:00 European

Adnan Akant on Investors’ Corner: Interest-rate differentials have returned as a driver of the US dollar and a further rise in US bond yields on the back of robust economic growth and inflation as well as bumper US bond issuance could give the dollar a short-term boost. Further out, monetary policy tightening in Europe and Japan and a pick-up in global growth could halt the greenback’s advance, prompting the market’s favour to swing towards the euro and the Japanese yen.
