Our foreign currency risk expertise

As real estate companies increasingly diversify by investing abroad, they need to protect against foreign currency swings to safeguard the value of their portfolios. With extensive experience in developing and executing hedging strategies for real estate investors, Chatham is uniquely positioned to help you understand your exposure to fluctuations in the foreign currency markets and mitigate the associated risks.

Our proprietary trade management platform, ChathamDirect, allows you to view all of your positions across your portfolio and understand your exposure to each trading counterparty. Chatham can recommend FX counterparties with competitive pricing and terms, onboard your selected counterparties, assist with ISDA negotiation, and provide regulatory advice.
