Anyone investing internationally is effectively making two investments — one in the foreign equity itself and the other in the exchange rate value of that investment. Potentially, international equity gains can be limited — or even become losses — by exchange rate risk.

The good news is that a currency hedging strategy may mitigate this risk. Please join our experts on this webinar for an important look at:

  • Misconceptions vs. realities of hedging
  • Current levels for the major currencies
  • Why an uncorrelated currency can still raise volatility
  • Strategic hedging vs. tactical hedging
  • The Xtrackers approach
