The currency markets have been unpredictable, with the U.S. dollar unexpectedly weakening this year, adding another layer of risk when investors seek to gain exposure to potential overseas opportunities. IndexIQ and ETF Trends outline risks international markets pose to equity investments and discuss hedging strategies to better manage exposure to global markets.
Join Tom Lydon, Editor and Publisher of ETF Trends, as he moderates this discussion on:
- Opportunities in international markets
- Currency risks and the negative implications they can have on foreign equity exposure
- Why a 50% currency hedge, the hedge of least regret, may be an optimal choice
- How financial advisors can incorporate this strategy in a diversified investment portfolio
