In today’s global economy, many investors (asset managers, pension funds, insurance companies, sovereign wealth funds and family offices) have international investments through their Equity, Fixed Income and Commodity portfolios.
Through those investments – intentionally or otherwise – they are exposed to foreign exchange fluctuations that can significantly reduce their performance and drastically increase the volatility of their portfolios.
However, with thorough analysis of their investments, these foreign exchange exposures can be correctly identified and managed. Some investors will seek to cost-efficiently fully or partially mitigate these risks; others will prefer to benefit from this volatility and leverage it as a source of alpha.
At Avalon Capital Partners, our team of seasoned experts strive to assist investors to identify those risks, advise on strategies to meet the clients objectives and constraints (through hedging or as a source of Alpha) and provide them with simple and cost-effective solutions, transparent pricing, trade execution and automated post trade services.
