The merits of building an effective FX strategy
These are understandably uncertain times for all market participants, including the global private equity industry, as the impact on supply chains and business revenues across all sectors begins to take effect from Covid-19.
To guard against market volatility, it is becoming more important than ever to have a flexible FX risk framework in place. Doing so can help managers protect their funds’ assets against currency volatility, which – if left unchecked – could potentially impact valuations both at the acquisition stage, and at exit.
