Feb 2007 United Kingdom Scheme Issues & Trends, Investment - Performance
As many pension funds increase their exposure to overseas investments in order to diversify their equity risk, a study from Mellon Analytical Solutions (MAS) has shown that over the longer term, currency overlay managers added value.
