With hundreds of billions now wiped off the markets, McKinsey’s Global Private Markets Review 2020 report suggests that only one third of private equity firms have adjusted their strategy to prepare for a potential recession. Against this backdrop it has arguably never been more important for PE managers to think about how they build value into their portfolio companies and one way to achieve this, is to construct a flexible FX risk framework, to help protect funds’ assets against currency volatility.

This report, brought to you by Western Union Business Solutions in partnership with Private Equity Wire, examines some of the key considerations to building such a programme and explains how FX hedging can protect the long-term performance of a fund.
