Having recently sold his business, Paolo Lourenço has a substantial amount
of cash that he wishes to invest. While keen to hold more equities outside of his native Brazil, he has concerns
that the investment cycle may soon turn down.
Mr Lourenço’s relationship team review his circumstances with him
in order to get a full understanding of his objectives.
Our Global Investment Lab performs an Equity
diagnostic assessment of his entire wealth, including his holdings outside of Citi,
and highlights ways to achieve his desired exposure.
Mr Lourenço decides to get exposure to Eurozone equities via a trading strategy
that will enable him to benefit if markets keep rising, but which will also give him
some protection if they fall.
Noting Citi Research’s foreign-exchange forecasts, he asks our trading
specialists to hedge the currency risk of his European equity strategy.
