Course Benefits

You will learn the following :

1. Don’t get caught out - When the markets are moving quickly, it is easy to get caught up in the emotions of fear or greed. However, this is when you may be most susceptible to making an expensive mistake and you may not get the best price.

2. Be prepared if a key person is unavailable

Market volatility can happen at any time – such as the Flash Crash in October 2016, where the Pound dropped 6% against the Dollar in a matter of minutes with no obvious cause.

3. Agree a strategic approach across the business

Boards can be unforgiving when an exchange rate drops by 10% but the risks weren’t hedged. But if exchange rates go the other way, a CFO may find they are being challenged on why they decided to hedge
