Netting Benefits Outweigh the Risk of Adverse FX Rate Movements

by FX Transparency, LLC. | Best Practice

By delaying the execution of certain FX trades to capture the benefits of netting, additional
market and timing risks are assumed. FX Transparency argues, however, that the FX market is
efficient, and hence just as likely to move in the investor’s favor over that time horizon, as it is to
move against the investor, and that over the long run, the effects of market timing are a zero-sum game. Investors are left with the savings of netted trades derived from executing lower
volumes in the market.
