Over the past year, many companies have grown to expect the unexpected in the face of global events that have defied analyst and economist projections. While some have been fortunate enough to benefit from currency swings, most are finding an increased need for predictability in their financials in these volatile markets. As reality has deviated substantially from budget rates in many cases, FX impacts on performance have taken the spotlight with a renewed emphasis on prudent currency risk management.
In this webinar, Chatham will cover the following learning objectives:
– Learn about common types of FX hedging programs and the purposes they serve
– Evaluate the real world constraints on risk management and how to navigate challenges
– Understand how leading practices can be applied to your organization’s risk profile
