Exchange rate risk management is an integral part in every firm’s decisions about foreign currency exposure. Measuring and managing exchange rate risk exposure is important for reducing a firm’s vulnerabilities from major exchange rate movements, which could adversely affect profit margins and the value of assets.
How significant is your foreign exchange exposure to the financial health of your company? What strategies are your competitors pursuing? Do you need to develop a strategy to manage your foreign exchange exposures?
This hands-on course offers a rigorous approach to understanding foreign exchange risk management in both its risk management policy foundations and in a practical financial markets transactions context. Workshop attendees are introduced to a unique explanatory methodology for portraying any commercial foreign exchange exposure and then use that methodology to engineer solutions to commercially realistic case studies that are designed to develop familiarity with international foreign exchange market transactions and techniques. In doing so, attendees are given a rarely explained "behind the scenes" view of bank’s actions and pricing practices that result from client transaction requests. Understanding these "background" bank practices gives attendees the ability to assess whether a bank is offering "fair value" transaction pricing. This ability alone has caused many past workshop attendees to remark that the money they have saved by being well informed far exceeded the cost of the workshop.
