Dynamic Hedging Programme for Institutional InvestorsRelease Date: 17 Apr 2019
The dynamic hedging programme was first introduced in December 2016 as part of the Bank’s initiative to provide market access for institutional investors to actively manage their FX exposures of their invested assets. As at end of Q1 2019, the total assets under this programme amounted to USD31.2 billion under the management of 70 non-residents and 17 resident investors. The vibrant onshore FX market now records a robust daily average volume of USD12.3 billion, of which the FX forward and swap markets account for almost half the volume. Since the introduction of the programme, the FX forward market has also recorded a two-fold increase in volume.
