Foreign currency derivative use and shareholder value
Full text is not in this repository.
This paper investigates the effect of foreign currency (FC) derivative use on shareholder value. Exposures are broken down by currency, by whether the currency is appreciating or depreciating and by whether exposures are symmetric or asymmetric. We find that derivatives are effective in reducing overall FC exposure but there is no evidence of value creation through the application of a program that identifies and targets only loss causing exposures. We also find that FC derivatives use has no significant effect on firm value in the overall sample and when the sample is broken down by exposure type and derivative product.
