CURRENCIES DECODED

Foreign Exchange (FX) offers investors a diverse choice of investment opportunities. Recently, currencies have come into focus for many investors due to elevated levels of volatility and increased uncertainty around monetary policy. As a result, investors have indicated a need for greater education and research to help them better understand currencies and access these opportunities.

CURRENCY PRODUCTS:


Once a niche investment area, access to currencies is finally opening up to the wider investment community via Exchange Traded Products (ETPs).
Single currency pair ETPs offer a simple, transparent and effective way to express a view on specific currencies.
