Abstract: This paper derives downside risk minimizing hedge ratios for Korean food manufacturers who face commodity price risks and exchange rate risk simultaneously. The results show that the minimum semivariance hedge (MSVH) effectively reduces risks. The MSVH rule is evidently more efficient than the conventional minimum variance hedge.
