FX hedge ratios decline as pandemic volatility recedes

FX forward hedge ratios among the top 10 US mutual fund managers have on average declined over the past three quarters. The average hedge ratio was 26.24% in the second quarter, down from 34% in Q3 2020. This suggests the top 10 firms hedged a smaller proportion of their assets over that period, which has coincided with FX volatility slowly returning to pre-Covid 19 levels. The hedge ratio is calculated by taking the US dollar amount of forwards traded by a fund in a quarter and dividing that figure by the firm's total reported assets, with the latter only including assets from sub funds that trade FX forwards.
