riskmanagement1While a traditional management approach considers the risk of each asset in isolation, the ePrivate Banking algorithm seeks to find the best possible performance for a given overall risk level by capitalising on the interaction between the assets within the portfolio. 

riskmanagement2The electronic asset manager then uses historical data and varying phases of the economic cycles to identify those securities among the thousands of securities within the investment universe that are likely to cancel out each other's risk, ultimately constructing a portfolio that offers the best returns relative to any given risk level. And as asset forecasts and performance change over time, ePrivate Banking adapts your portfolio on a regular basis with a view to exploiting new relationships and maintaining the optimal balance between risk and return at all times.

This guarantees that you will reap the benefits of your strategy without suffering the effects of any exchange rate fluctuations for investments in currencies other than your reference currency.
