CANADA - Global Pensions invites readers to save the date for the Currency Management Forum Toronto 2010 to discuss how pension funds can make the most of the unique currency environment.
Volatility in the currency markets has not subsided and has continued to soar since 2008. But the current swings in currency are driven by the government debt bubble instead of uncertainty in the markets. This is a unique situation. The markets are not reacting to the possibility of a default by the major debtors, like the US and the UK. Rather, they are reacting to the monetary tightening that's due to follow.
The Currency Management Forum 2010 will look at how to best manage this volatility, how to reap alpha from currency, discuss currency as an asset class, and look at ways to best evaluate your currency manager.
