The Full FX Podcast: Currency Matters – with FX HedgePool
Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: February 14, 2022
In the first edition for 2022, Jay Moore, co-founder and CEO of FX HedgePool, joins Colin Lambert to talk a changing FX market structure against a background of rising market volatility.
Moore observes that the cost of hedging for the buy side is rising – and expectations are that the cost will increase further as spreads widen – thanks to a combination of higher risk and the impact of regulation. One potential solution for the buy side is peer-to-peer matching in FX swaps, especially around the month-end, however the two also discuss the reasons behind FX HedgePool launching a mid-month matching service.
From tracking error, through pre-hedging, to access to liquidity, the landscape is changing for the buy side seeking to hedge their FX exposures, and this is prompting a re-think over operational procedures as well as how the buy side accesses the FX market.
