RBC Dexia Investor Services has launched a new passive foreign exchange hedging service designed to protect clients’ investments against currency risk. The service allows clients to outsource the end-to-end responsibility for data capture, currency hedging calculations and transaction reporting.

“Our new hedging service is a major step forward in terms of offering our clients a highly flexible and customizable outsourced solution for their portfolio hedging needs,” said Morgan McDonnell, head of foreign exchange markets and product for RBC Dexia. “Using our service will allow them to create tailored hedging strategies that are perfectly aligned with their investment performance objectives.”

The program offers transparent pricing and client-driven execution times that provide liquidity matching and fund valuation consistency, with complete flexibility to hedge at different levels of fund hierarchy.
