What is FTSE WPU?
World Parity Unit (WPU) is a basket of eleven currencies and two commodities, Gold and Oil. FTSE WPU is designed to protect global investors' wealth against currency swings and inflation. Global investors have very large exposures to major currencies like the US Dollar and Euro. Hedging concentrated currency exposure into FTSE WPU reduces the currency risk by diversification.
