Podcast by Millennium Global with Abigail Cushing


A Conversation with Millennium Global Investments' Co-CEO, Mark Astley about the recent significant strength of the US dollar, potential problems it creates for US investors, how to think about addressing those problems, and the outlook for the US dollar from here.

Discussion points:

02:16: Let's look at the U.S. dollar’s remarkably strong performance in 2022. What are the driving forces behind this phenomenon?

03:58: How has this historic USD strength impacted US-domiciled capital owners, including pension funds, endowments and foundations, many of whom have meaningful exposure to overseas assets in Europe, Japan, China and other emerging markets?

06:28: How should we think about the problem then of managing FX risk as distinct from the other risks in a globally invested portfolio?

08:08: When managing this currency risk, when is the right time to hedge and when is the wrong time?

11:10 What should we expect from here? The US dollar has already experienced a serious rise. Is there nowhere to go from here but down, or can this strength be sustained?

15:20: How can institutional investors address the problem?
