Over the last few years, clients have had to tackle ever-changing market conditions and are now faced with rising complexity, increasing cost pressure, more investment diversity, broader distribution networks, and greater volatility across currencies. Optimising currency risk management has now become an essential task within any manager’s investment strategy, and to help clients take on these challenges and mitigate investment risk, CACEIS has enhanced its Currency Overlay services offer.

Understanding the issues and risks clients face, CACEIS has developed a range of three currency risk management solutions that cover funds’ assets and liabilities.

Share Class Hedging permits hedging of units in currencies other than the fund’s base currency thereby protecting investors against exchange rate volatility and allowing them to take full advantage of generated alpha.

Portfolio hedging involves hedging securities in a portfolio which are not in the fund or fund units’ base currency.

Benchmark hedging uses the varied weightings of currencies in the fund’s benchmark index to hedge the portfolio’s assets.

This is complemented by a robust and flexible currency management system, and a structured implementation process to ensure operational efficiency and a smooth roll-out”, explained Charline Lescouzeres, Group Product Manager - Senior Expert at CACEIS.

Understanding the clients’ objectives is key when selecting the right currency hedging strategy. With this new offer, CACEIS can provide bespoke and flexible currency overlay solutions that precisely match clients’ specific needs in terms of currency exposure and risk constraints.
