Foreign exchange adds notable risk to investment and business, and there is no natural hedging effect against it. That’s why investors/companies with international exposure should have a currency policy. The COM’s foremost objective is to capture the main trends in the foreign exchange markets while reducing the risk for the client.
The COM is based on quantitative models that will systematically provide with hedging signals depending on the underlying spot’s behaviour. The signals generated by the models are applied in a disciplined manner. This transparent methodology provides a high stability in results, as proven in our 18 years-old real track-record.
The COM dynamically changes the hedge ratio depending on the underlying spot price movements. Active currency overlay aims to improve risk/return ratios of currency exposure while remaining in the context of the underlying investments.
COM does not leverage or increases the long/short underlying exposure.
Any Benchmark between 0% and 100% is possible, depending on the client’s needs and market evolution.
