Authors: Emmanuel Acar, Shane James

Should the Mexican Peso be reserved for only high risk hedges?  The authors offer more that enough reasons for taking a closer look at the peso's usefulness in a broader investment role.  Using a foreign exchange index, the authors build their case that risk adjusted returns from active currency portfolios management can be enhanced through inclusion of the Mexican Peso contract.
