Portfolio and Share Class Hedging
One of our specialists will work with you to develop a simple, tailored foreign currency hedging solution that’s built around your needs. Helping you to stay ahead of market risks, of change and volatility.
With an expert to support you at every step, working closely with existing fund managers, custodians, management companies, prime brokers and administrators to avoid disruption.
We offer passive and active FX hedging solutions for portfolio and share class hedging, focussing on reducing currency risk and fluctuations in exchange rates between the base and hedged currency.
As a regulated custodian, authorised payment institute and global FX provider, our model is transparent. With prices fixed at the start of our relationship, there are no hidden fees, our solutions are flexible, competitive and bespoke to you.
We’ll actively manage the performance of the hedge, while giving you complete control on hedge ratios and overall FX exposure. Using spot and forward transactions to hedge your currency exposure within predetermined parameters.
You will be provided with a custom-built hedging portal that will provide live data for all trades. A live P&L view is provided for all open trades as well as live margin positions. The portal assists our clients with a number of regulatory requirements including timely confirmations, portfolio reconciliations, mark-to-market valuations and collateral margin requirements.
When executing your FX deals via GC Partners you can ensure best execution is achieved, as we have access to all major banks through our numerous liquidity providers.
By using currency swaps we ensure all new subscriptions are converted into the base currency of the fund and hedged without any currency movement.
By rolling over hedges regularly we can see where gains and losses have taken shape and ensure the value of the hedge matches the value of the fund. We will set specific tolerances and perform intra month hedges when these are reached.
We monitor rate volatility, rolling forward FX transactions earlier if necessary to reduce currency exposure.
