The Emerging Markets Currency Alpha Program aims to profit from short and medium term moves in the developing markets’ currency pairs. Depending on market conditions and volatility, we combine fundamental, technical and/or discretionary investment styles. Risk management is central to the firm’s culture and an integral part of the investment process. We have developed unique methods for managing volatility and “left side” tail that are grounded in Extreme Value Theory.
