CLIENT SCENARIO

Recently when USDINR went to 72.40, one of our clients panicked and wanted to increase their hedges significantly. We assessed the global situation related to bond yields, convexity hedging, the divergence of Fed stance, and market rates. We were convinced that additional hedging was not required even though the market trend looked otherwise. Our understanding of the market, experience and assessment told us so. We convinced our client through multiple calls to avoid panicking and instead maintain the minimum band of hedge ratio and wait for a better level to increase the hedge. In a couple of days, 74.00 was traded for a short while and we re-started the SIP hedge program building hedges at 77.0-78.0-79.0-80.0 levels. This is just an example of how we prevented our client from taking a suboptimal decision which would have resulted in opportunity loss and hence would have been wrong.”
