You benefit from our fully outsourced foreign exchange (FX) hedging and execution solutions deployed at the portfolio or share class-level, and our open architecture that adeptly aligns with your business objectives, regardless of custodian, fund accountant or FX counterparties.

Our currency management solutions include:

Share class hedging
Our share class-level hedging helps efficiently deliver hedged investment options from a common fund. Strategies include net asset value replication and look-through hedging relative to portfolio or benchmark holdings, as well as replication of currency-hedged benchmarks.

Portfolio hedging
Passively hedge portfolio currency risk or hedge the difference between portfolio currency exposures and a target currency exposure-completion hedging. Strategies are highly customizable, including multi-manager and multiasset-class programs as well as security-level funding and hedging.
