Farah Lotia’s Insights on Global Risks in 2019
“The Top Global Risks in 2019”
“91% of respondents to the Global Risks Perception Survey indicated that economic confrontation/frictions between major powers were an expected risk increase in 2019.”
Hedge Trackers Director of Quantitative Analytics, Farah Lotia, commentary:
With the expected risk increase in 2019, we can assume that the currency volatility will be on the rise. The question is, in what direction?
It is a wait-and-see period, but if we wait too long, rates will move, and we could be caught on the wrong side. Treasurers should be constantly looking at their programs and understand their exposures to identify what they could do to leverage their strategies.
