Re: Currency Hedges? + Harbor Robeco US Conservative Equities Fund [ Investor Class - HRUVX ]

edited January 2020 in The Bullpen

Thanks for posting info about Harbor/Robeco's new funds in the Jan 2020 Launch Alert.

In reviewing info about the fund and its foreign-investing companions, available at Harbor's website Harbor's website, it looks as if [unsure] Robeco is NOT committing itself to hedge the foreign currency exposure for the global/foreign stock funds.

I recall that when Vanguard rolled out a global minimum volatility fund, they were very clear that they intended to hedge the fund's foreign current exposure:

"The [Vanguard] fund will seek to hedge most of its currency exposure back to the US dollar to further reduce overall portfolio volatility."

Do you (or others) have any thoughts why it seems as if Robeco decided not to emphasize the use of currency hedges for their Conservative funds' foreign holdings?
