Join the 19 Oct webcast for more on consistent FX returns and active management

Currencies can represent a significant source of risk for institutional investors. Left unmanaged, their currency exposure often functions like a buy-and-hold strategy which receives little or no risk premium and adds unwanted volatility to portfolio returns.

As these investors evaluate their choices in addressing their foreign exchange exposure, they often struggle with the questions of whether and how currency managers can add value.

Deputy Head of Currencies Momtchil Pojarliev presents evidence that active currency management may be a consistent source of return that is measurable using various performance metrics similar to those used for traditional asset classes such as equities and bonds.
