Abstract

Since most present studies on exchange rate risk have pointed out that it does exist, firms need to hedge all currencies in use. However, by examining the discrepancy between cost-side and revenue-side exposures across two major financial crises for Taiwanese firms, we find that the exposure mainly comes from the revenue side during the subprime crisis, while that comes from the cost side during the Asian crisis. Our results offer an applicable implication that as long as the cost-based or revenue-based hedging strategy can acquire same hedging benefit and effectively reduce hedging cost.
