Insight has managed currency solutions for global institutional investors since 1991. Our Currency Solutions Team is responsible for £48.4bn1 in exposure terms across a wide range of tailored solutions for clients in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.
We believe that our Currency Solutions Team is one of the industry’s most experienced teams, specialising in quantitative solutions, risk management techniques and macro discretionary strategies. The team’s experience allows us to produce high-quality research, keeping our clients updated on both current market events and long-term strategic issues.
We are a global provider of currency solutions that works in partnership with our clients to deliver fully tailored solutions. Managing currency risk is as important as asset allocation in determining the outcome of a portfolio. At Insight, we believe we have the skills and range of products needed to support clients in formulating a currency strategy and customising a currency solution to fit their objectives. Part of our consultative and holistic approach involves working closely with clients to help establish and review strategic currency policy, underlying asset coverage, implementation considerations and the possible diversification benefits of both quantitative and macro discretionary approaches to currency management.
Insight has considerable experience in managing bespoke currency solutions for clients across passive hedging, dynamic hedging and currency absolute return. Our capabilities include trading all developed and emerging market currencies in both spot and derivative markets. Insight is committed to minimising FX trading costs for our clients and has employed BestX as our independent TCA provider.
