Automated foreign exchange
Our fully automated FX platform facilitates clients’ FX execution linked to securities trading and events related to the securities lifecycle (settlement transactions, corporate actions, incomes, subscriptions and redemptions, cash flows and listed derivatives). Clients provide us with guidelines and we implement their FX instructions.
Our offer is fully transparent: clients benefit from wholesale market rates or officially published fixing rates +/- pre-agreed fixed spreads. All FX deals are time stamped.
Passive currency overlay
We implement and monitor clients’ foreign exchange strategies for asset and share-class FX exposure management. Hedging strategies are set at the level of each unit, for different share classes of a same subfund or compartment, or for a given currency or a group of funds.
We take charge of all the steps of the hedging process: from identifying currency risk, calculating of forex exposures and hedging adjustments, to executing transactions within specified guidelines and providing reporting to monitor investment decisions.
