As part of the financial planning process that takes place within a business, exposure to foreign currency should be high on the priority list. It is essential to analyse exactly where the FX risks are likely to be for your business in the short and longer term. Once a business determines it’s FX objectives, the next step is to devise an appropriate hedging strategy that reduces the impact that currency can have on their bottom line.
The approach taken should be based on the following considerations:
• Visibility of requirement
• What the business is looking to achieve
• Understanding the products available to them
• Their expectation of the market
