Currency Hedging & Risk Management Service

 


Dynamic protection of foreign currency investments against

Exchange rate fluctuations


 

Global investment, trade and entrepreneurship expose actors to the risks of exchange rate fluctuations. CHRES uses proven foreign exchange trading strategies to identify and mitigate these risks.

When investing or doing business in foreign countries, the risk of fluctuating exchange rates is often overlooked. While the actual value of the asset denominated in the foreign currency may not change, the actual cash value received by the investor after conversion into euro may fluctuate significantly due to the exchange rate.

CHRES uses forex trading strategies with a 20-year track record and state-of-the-art technology to identify trends and dynamically increase or decrease protection. Users can decide on their level of security by selecting one of several scenarios per currency.
