Because each of our clients has unique risk and return objectives, we offer a suite of programs to manage currency exposures. Each strategy is client-specific, calibrated to strike the preferred balance between risk and reward, and be responsive to a stated benchmark. In addition to the custom solutions developed by Mesirow Financial, we also provide currency for return solutions through The Cambridge Strategy (TCS), which was acquired by Mesirow Financial in 2018.
