Across developed and emerging markets, we have the solutions clients need to manage currency risk and harness it as a tool for shaping portfolios to support their strategic objectives.
Currency markets are caught in the crosswinds of slower growth, higher yields/inflation, and higher equity market volatility, with USD as the clear beneficiary of these forces.
Commodity and currency markets incorporated the potential negative impacts of the fourth wave of Covid that began in July and in turn caused August’s lockdowns. Equity markets and credit spreads weathered the storm quite well as the potential for an economic slowdown also reduced expected interest rates propping up equity valuations and reducing expected funding costs.
We have been providing currency management solutions since 1989, and today we have 25 currency professionals across four continents.
