Hedging Your Portfolio

Hedging your Portfolio

Financial Promotion

Hedging your portfolio! What’s that? May well seem Greek and Hebrew to someone from a non-finance background. But hey, portfolios contain multiple investments and when you talk of hedging, you obviously mean protecting. But how? Don’t investments always have an element of risk attached to them? Well portfolio hedging is about minimizing, yet not eliminating such risks altogether.

How It Works

Let’s say an investment portfolio has two contrasting funds. One is offering good returns and the other is struggling to meet investors’ expectations. So, what should you do? How about countering the possible losses generated by ‘x’ number of units of one fund by purchasing exactly the same number of units in the other that is witnessing an upswing. This is what seasoned finance experts such as Clear Capital Markets would recommend.

Because finance professionals are attuned to the fluctuations in the world of money that can cause currency rate, interest rate, price, etc. to go up or down mildly or wildly, seeking their assistance is advisable.

Why Portfolio Hedging Matters

As you seek expert guidance, you will discover that portfolio hedging is primarily meant for investors who do not like to sit on their investments and will be affected by short-term losses. Hedging can curtail profits too, thus underlining the need to let it remain the prerogative of experts. It will not be wrong to equate hedging with insurance as both serve the same purpose. 

Contact Clear Capital Markets and we will familiarize you with terms used in the context of portfolio hedging viz. derivatives, options, future, etc.  Hedging aside, Clear Capital Markets can guide you in all finance-related products and services.
