All investors are exposed to currency risk when investing internationally. Investors who allocate to global equity portfolios may be exposed to currency risk as a result of fluctuations in exchange rates. Those wishing to minimize currency impacts often hedge their foreign currency risk without altering their underlying equity exposure. Fully hedged indexes may be used by those seeking to remove the direct impact of currency from their equity asset allocations.
