Amol Dhargalkar, managing director of Chatham Financial’s Global Corporate Sector, noted that slow growth in Europe, Canada, China and Japan, as well as recessions in Brazil, South Africa and Russia have impacted companies’ ability to forecast swings in FX rates. Consequently, newer entrants to the global markets have delayed implementing hedging strategies. Mr. Dhargalkar said such delays are likely to continue until these companies can more comfortably predict business patterns and make forecasts.
