Sydney, April 13, 2012 AEST (ABN Newswire) - How would that impact your portfolio performance? Dr Savvas Savouri of Toscafund Asset Management has suggested the A$ could climb to US$1.70 on the back of continuing demand for Australian resources.

The long term results of such a rapid appreciation could have huge implications for offshore investments. As institutional investors and fund managers grapple with volatile financial markets, managing FX exposure is becoming ever more crucial to investment performance. These markets are also encouraging investors and fund managers to look to FX as an opportunity to diversify their portfolios and discover alpha in FX as a new asset class.

In 3 weeks the FX Australia Congress will be held in Sydney on 3 May 2012. In just one day we will bring you all the latest on FX hedging and investment strategies.
