Jonathan Webb, former head of FX Strategy at Jefferies, and portfolio manager/proprietary trader at major banks (HSBC, Credit Suisse, RBS, Bank of America) and hedge funds (C-View, GLC), manages the C8 Hedge platform.

Webb said: “Managing FX exposure can be complex and easy to get wrong, a combination that provides treasurers and funds with an unwelcome problem every time they buy and sell overseas assets. C8 Hedge makes the process much simpler and effective by automating the risk management process, offering users proactive strategies to optimise outcomes while freeing them to concentrate on their fundamental business activities”.

“Applying our systematic trading models to FX hedging through an intuitive platform that anyone can use allows corporates and funds avoid the complexities they would otherwise face when they buy an asset or sell products overseas” added Eriksson.
