Abstract

The purpose of this research is to attempt a comparative study of the impact of size on foreign exchange risk management practices using manufacturing firms in the Western Region of Melbourne. This is to provide evidence to either support or refute the results from the other studies conducted whereby large companies and multinational corporations were used to determine whether size has a significant impact on risk management practices of a firm. Specifically, this study investigated the risk management practices in manufacturing firms using company specific variables identified from the related literature reviewed viz: policy and responsibility, degree of centralisation, foreign exchange forecasting, risk management objectives, hedging strategy and policies, and computerisation of risk management.
