The Local Authority Update 2019 of the Pensions and Lifetime Saving Association (PLSA) took place in London on November 12 under the motto "Surfing the wave of opportunity". About 100 participants were received at this event, including representatives of municipal benefit funds and pension schemes (Local Government Pension Funds - LGPS).
Dominik Müller, Georgios Tsiourvas and Harwig Wild attended as representatives of PLSA member Metzler Capital Markets and hosted a well-attended workshop on FX risks in global investment portfolios. They demonstrated ways to identify FX risks and gave examples of how to handle them. The modern strategies of Metzler Currency Management combine active management decisions with quantitative models for systematically recording trend developments. In this way, individual solutions can be implemented and full transparency can be guaranteed.
