The Full FX Unfiltered
Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: February 12, 2024
In the latest Unfiltered video interview, Colin Lambert discusses the importance of smarter FX hedging strategies with Mattias Eriksson, CEO and co-founder of C8 Technologies, and Jon Webb, head of the firm’s C8 Hedge product.
With volatility returning to FX markets, Eriksson and Webb explain how C8 Hedge can help customers cover the currency risk in a more sophisticated fashion, but simpler decision-making framework. With their background in systematic currency management, they discuss the benefits of that approach for hedgers, as well as how their predictive models help customers respond more proactively to currency risks.
There is also time to talk about active versus passive currency management, and why trading more often may actually benefit the hedging customer more, as well as the benefits of a portfolio approach to FX risk.
