Abstract [en]

It is essential for managers of multinational corporations to identify which foreign exchange risks the company is exposed to and how these risks affect the firm’s strategic business plan. A majority of modern multinational company’s have incorporated foreign exchange risk policy into their operations in order to manage these risks. The risk management strategies of multinational companies have been the subject of intense theoretical and empirical research. However, the actual hedging practices of multinational firms have to a lesser extent been researched. We therefore found it interesting to conduct a detailed investigation of how two multinational corporations develop, implement, and execute their foreign exchange risk management. The selected companies were Autoliv and Sapa, two multinational sub-suppliers. We addressed three general research questions: Why do Autoliv and Sapa manage foreign exchange risk? How do Autoliv and Sapa structure their foreign exchange hedging program? How do Autoliv and Sapa execute their hedges?
