BMW took a two-angled approach to manage its foreign exchange exposure.
1. Natural hedge – In this approach it would develop ways to spend money in the same currency as where sales were taking place, meaning revenues would also be in the local currency. 2.
Financial hedge – To reduce financial loss and manage the risk factor BMW set up regional treasury centres in the US, the UK and Singapore. Implementation of the natural hedge strategy was implemented in two ways. The first involved establishing factories in the markets where it sold its products; the second involved making more purchases denominated in the currencies of its main markets. BMW now has production facilities for cars and components in 13 countries. In 2000, its overseas production volume accounted for 20 per cent of the total. By 2011, it had risen to 44 per cent.
BMW had become one of the first premium carmakers from overseas to set up a plant in the US in mid 1990s. In 2008, BMW announced it was investing $750m to expand its Spartanburg plant in the US. The company advanced its purchasing in US dollars generally, especially in the NAFTA ( North American Free Trade Agreement ) region. Its office in Mexico City made $ 615m of purchases of Mexican auto parts in 2009. A joint venture with Brilliance China Automotive was set up in China, where half the BMW cars for sale in the country are now manufactured. At the end of 2010, BMW announced it would invest 1.8billion rupees in its production plant in Chennai, India, and increase production capacity in India from 6,000 to 10,000 units. Meanwhile, the overseas regional treasury centres were instructed to analyze the exchange rate exposure in their regions on a weekly basis and report it to a group treasurer, part of the group finance operation, in Munich.
The group treasurer team then consolidates risk figures globally and recommends actions to mitigate foreign exchange risk. RESULT – By manufacturing into foreign markets the company not only reduces its foreign exchange exposure but also benefits from being close to its customers. In addition, sourcing parts overseas, and therefore closer to its foreign markets, also helps to diverge supply chain risks. CONCLUSIONThe profit from investment management firms are directly linked to the way in which market behaves.

Many companies have not only managed themselves to the main financial risks but also to the other risks which may indirectly impact on the finances of organizations – such as operational, reputational and legal and regulatory risk.
There is, however, no ‘one size fits all’ way of implementing financial risk management. Instead the process must be modified to fit the size, complexity, industry competition and environmental uncertainty facing the organization. Firms may have small exposures to the individual risks, but when these are aggregated they may have, in total, substantial financial and non-financial risks that require careful management.
