No 233, Frankfurt School - Working Paper Series from Frankfurt School of Finance and Management

Abstract: FX rates are increasingly volatile in recent macroeconomic and geopolitical times of uncertainty. FX risk if not dealt with properly can pose existential threads to companies. Especially fast-growing companies, that have previously not hedged FX risks due to insignificance, need to build up a proper FX risk management. This working paper delivers a comprehensive guide on FX hedging for small and medium enterprises. It should help a treasurer to setup and/or improve their FX hedging approach. The goal of this paper is to provide a treasurer with the necessary tools and knowledge to manage and hedge his company's FX exposure. The paper provides insights on the practical implementation, regulatory framework, and accounting perspective of an FX risk management.
