Currency hedging

When it comes to your equity investments, we enable you to concentrate solely on the markets themselves. With the currency-hedged UBS ETFs based on equity indices, you hedge your portfolio against exchange rate fluctuations – cost effectively, efficiently and transparently. Investing with UBS ETFs allows for a secure currency hedging strategy. 

Your benefits of investing in UBS ETFs currency hedged at a glance

  • Reduced foreign currency risk.
  • Cost efficient access to currency hedged indices.
  • Transparent currency-hedging methodology with one month forward FX contracts.
  • Physical replication of the index market exposures.
  • Distributing and accumulating share classes available.
  • UCITs compliant fund structure.
  • Widest range of currency-hedged ETFs in Europe.*

Exchange rate fluctuations have many causes, whether central banks' monetary policy, external trade imbalances or unexpected political changes. In difficult phases in particular, these fluctuations can drive either profits or losses on stock markets.

With UBS ETFs, however, investors can concentrate completely on their equity strategies – UBS Asset Management offers you a wide range of physically replicated ETFs based on equity indices with currency hedging. This transparent currency hedging strategy helps you to reduce exchange rate risk and optimize your return opportunities.

Performance of MSCI Japan indices and JPY/CHF exchange rate

This example illustrates just how significantly currency fluctuations can impact returns: Calculated in Japanese yen (JPY), the MSCI Japan Index generated a return of 11.28% p.a. between March 2009 and March 2014. Due to exchange rate losses against the franc (CHF), however, Swiss investors only saw a return of 4.90% p.a. With currency hedging in CHF, the annualized return was 9.28%, almost twice as high.

With UBS ETFs, investors can hedge their portfolio in four currencies: Swiss francs (CHF), euros (EUR), US dollars (USD) and the pound sterling (GBP). The currency-hedged ETFs offer access to the equity markets in the Eurozone, the US, Switzerland, Japan, Australia and Canada. This allows UBS Asset Management to offer investors the widest range of currency-hedged ETFs in Europe.*

UBS ETFs hedge the foreign currencies of the replicated indices by selling foreign currency forwards at the one-month forward rate. The sum of the sold forwards as at the last trading day of the month corresponds to the market capitalization weighting of the equities contained in the index. These securities are valued in the respective currency two trading days before the first calendar day of the following month. The amount hedged remains constant over the entire month.

The overall return of a currency-hedged UBS ETF therefore comprises two components:

  1. The return of the non-currency-hedged index in the selected reference currency.
  2. The profit or loss arising from the forward contract in the selected reference currency
