Investing in international markets means that along with the risk of the underlying investment, such as equity risk, investors are also exposed to currency risk.

In this paper we explore if U.S.-based investors should remove that currency risk through hedging with the following topics:

  1. Impact of hedging global equity for a U.S.-based investor.

  2. Total portfolio considerations for hedging currency risk.

  3. Additional considerations for investors with benchmark or peer-relative performance measurement.

  4. Other practical considerations.
