Bassett's Team Breakfasts With Reporters at Deutsche AM HQ

Reported by Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

Fiona Bassett's team breakfasted with reporters today to pitch a new white paper on currency.

This morning half a dozen members of the financial media gathered at Deutsche Asset Management's [profile] New York City headquarters, in midtown Manhattan, for a continental breakfast and press briefing. Dodd Kittsley, head of ETF strategy for Deutsche, led the discussion. Rob Bush, vice president of thought leadership for U.S. ETFs, and Abby Woodham, assistant vice president and ETF strategist for U.S. ETFs, presented their new "The New Neutral: the Long-Term Case For Currency Hedging" white paper. Currency-hedged offerings have been a key part of Deutsche's ETF growth in the U.S.

Bassett, managing director and head of passive asset management in the Americas, stopped by to chat with the reporters.

The new white paper, Kittsley explains, shows that exposure to other currencies increases a portfolio's overall volatility without actually adding any expected returns. Thus, the Deutsche folks argue, the question around currency should change from the tactical investor's "why now?" to the long-term investor's "why always?"

The Deutsche team is sending copies of the white paper to some key clients, Kittsley tells MFWire, and wholesalers are also bringing it out into the field.
