Importance of having a currency risk management strategy


 

 

FX volatility

With global central banks beginning to wean markets off some of the loosest policy conditions in recorded history. FX volatility has begun to creep higher. Measured on a 1yr rolling basis, USD index volatility has almost doubled in the past few years and shorter-term measures are looking to follow suit. A return of tighter policy will almost certainly come hand-in-hand with sharper adjustments in FX rates.

This raises the onus on those with international exposure to approach the FX markets strategically and with sound support – a non-existent currency risk management strategy means a sharp move against you in one currency pair, could wipe out your domestic gains in one fell swoop. A well thought out strategy, could protect you against the volatility of FX markets and prevent your returns from being eroded.

World First can support your currency risk management strategy by offering swap and forward contracts. Our account managers will talk you through our range of products to enable you to make an informed decision to suit your business goals.
