Working Papers Central Bank of Chile from Central Bank of Chile

Abstract: In this paper we analyze if currency hedging reduces risk. Based on historical data (1997- 2011) and using coherent measures of risk, we found that in equity portfolios it does not imply a reduction on risk. In contrast, for fixed-income portfolios the optimal hedging is 100%. Last finding is also robust to both USD and EUR portfolios
