E-Commerce and Exchange Rate Exposure Management: A Tilt towards Real Hedging

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperConference articleResearch

The aim of this paper is to address the impact of E-commerce on the balance between real hedging and financial hedging in the context of exchange rate exposure management in non-financial companies. A cross-case study of industrial companies highlights the inadequacy in taking a partial and static financial approach when managing exchange rate exposures. The paper argues that the emergence of E-commerce - by reducing the cost of obtaining, analyzing and allocating information - affects the dynamics of the markets and the dynamics of the company in such a way that a general tilt towards real hedging can be foreseen.
