CFO Insights — How to uncover hidden FX risks

Published on: Apr 22, 2016

Foreign exchange (FX) concerns and the strength of the US dollar have been high on the list of most worrisome risks in the CFO Signals™ survey for several quarters. Thus, organizations are facing pressure to address related risks, such as FX exposure identification and visibility into those exposures.

Identifying FX risk requires organizations to drill down into the various on-balance sheet exposures, as well as forecast cash flows to pull out granular data about transactions that take place at the company and subsidiary level.

In this issue of CFO Insights, we outline common missteps in identifying FX exposure and discuss why companies need a solid understanding of their various forecasts and drivers of those forecasts so that they can identify where exposures may lie.
