The macroeconomy has dominated financial news for much of 2021, driven at least partly by the specter of rising inflation and corresponding back-up in long-term interest rates.

A rise in inflation expectations above the Federal Reserve’s 2% target in the first quarter of 2021 triggered a sudden surge in long-term Treasury yields, which had been trading in relatively narrow ranges for most of 2020. It also led equity investors to re-evaluate their interest rate expectations, resulting in (temporary) halt of the spectacular stock market recovery. The dollar also began to strengthen once more on the prospect of higher rates and a widening economic growth differential with the rest of the world.

Foreign exchange rates can be very volatile, and investors looking to bet on markets outside their own base currency need to decide whether to embrace or mitigate the additional risk. Depending on the correlations with other asset classes, FX rate fluctuations can either amplify, dampen, or potentially even reverse local-market returns. Using FX forwards or options can eliminate part of the uncertainty, but they can also limit the potential upside from a foreign currency appreciation perspective.
