Foreign currency risks:

Investments in foreign currencies can provide investors with additional income in case of favorable price developments. The downside, in terms of negative exchange rate developments, can lead to very important risks for portfolios or business results of corporations.


This may involve both direct foreign currency positions, for example via forwards, as well as indirect foreign currency positions via bonds, stocks, ETFs, real estate or commodity investments. Cases in the recent past, such as the decision of the Swiss National Bank to remove the EUR-CHF peg (2015), the dramatic collapse of the Russian Ruble (2014) or even the strong decline of the Euro against the US dollar (2014), show the inherent risk as well as the need to implement stability and predictability to companies and portfolios.
