For investments denominated in a currency other than your organization’s base currency, Venn converts the investment’s returns to returns reflecting your organization’s base currency. Steps for the conversion generally include:

  1. Transforming the investment’s returns to prices

  2. Multiplying the investment’s prices at each date by the exchange rate of the organization's base currency to the investment’s denominated currency[1]

  3. Transforming the investment’s prices back to returns
