"It's obvious that this past year we would have been better off if we weren't hedged," said Jim Keohane, president and CEO of the C$60.8 billion Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan, Toronto, which is fully hedged under its investment policy. HOOPP uses a liability-driven investing strategy but has a 10% notional exposure to U.S. equities and 10% notional exposure to international equities.
"Those exposures are gained via derivatives so there are no currency-translation gains or losses," Mr. Keohane said.
HOOPP returned 5.9% on its international equity investments in 2014, the latest data available. Mr. Keohane said 2015 performance data would be released in March.
Mr. Keohane said by looking at hedging as an investment policy and not tactically, it removes the need to time when currency values will change.
"There are all kinds of stuff affecting them - general trade, spot events, oil prices. Currency movements are very unpredictable and extremely difficult to analyze and figure out," Mr. Keohane said.

Target benefit plans may be "the something" that makes sense between Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution plans, says James E. Keohane, senior vice-president, investment management, and chief investment officer at the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan. As part of the 'Pension Roundtable: Outlining the Future' at IMN's '10th Annual Canada Cup of Investment Management,' he said DB plans may move towards Target Benefit plans, but it will be a slow, evolutionary process. While he acknowledges the trend to DC plans, he has some serious concerns with them. It merely masks the underfunding problem by shifting it from the pension plan to the plan member who may not appreciate how much they need in retirement. He likens it to expecting people to perform their own surgery.
