Currency Administration with BNY Mellon

Currency hedging strategies help funds to mitigate currency volatility risk. Fund investors are becoming increasingly aware of this risk and are asking more questions about a fund’s currency hedging program. In addition, the execution, timing and capabilities around a currency hedging program can have a significant impact on the end investor’s implicit costs.
