Currency Hedging

MANAGING CLIENT PORTFOLIOS IS NOT JUST ABOUT ATR

IT’S ALL ABOUT ATR

When a client agrees their attitude to risk, they expect their investment to perform within a defined volatility range.

 

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF CURRENCY HEDGING:

WHEN ARE CLIENTS SUBJECTED TO CURRENCY RISK?

Whenever they are invested in a globally diversified portfolio
Whenever they own assets denominated in a currency other than GBP

WHAT IS THE RISK TO THE PORTFOLIO?

Returns are driven from the currency markets, not from the asset allocation
Strategy upon which portfolio is marketed can be made redundant
Volatility of portfolio becomes mis-aligned with client’s ATR profile

WHAT IS THE RISK TO THE CLIENT?

They are subjected to the movements in currency markets when they are not expecting it
May subsequently see themselves losing money when expecting to make gains (or vice versa)
They are subjected to unexpected levels of volatility
May be experiencing ‘Risk Profile 8’ volatility when recommended a ‘Risk Profile 5’ portfolio

THE RISK TO YOU – THE ADVISER:

If you do not comprehensively explain currency risk
when recommending a global portfolio…

YOU EXPOSE YOURSELF AND YOUR BUSINESS TO LEGAL ACTION ON ANY OF THE FOLLOWING GROUNDS:

Poor advice regarding the driver of a client’s returns
Poor advice regarding the volatility a client is exposed to
Complaints in relation to both of the above

and there is:

No defence for insufficiently explaining the risks at the outset
No defence for failing to match a portfolio to a client’s needs
No defence for not monitoring the ongoing volatility of a portfolio

This is a real and present danger
