Synopsis of the Masterclass

We investigate the relationship between stock market returns and exchange rate returns using a set of more than 40 countries observed over more than 25 years. We show that currency movements are essentially unrelated to expected and actual stock market movements. The upshot of this is that there are substantial returns available from applying simple investment strategies to international equity markets. Moreover, it is hard to justify those substantial returns using commonly accepted measures of risk.
