In times of heightened FX volatility, it is important to be aware of the impact that a change in FX rates can have on your project costs or investment returns.  By applying the three-stage methodology highlighted in our infographic, it is possible to make a clear, informed hedging decision that allows you continually to monitor your exposure throughout the life of a portfolio of investments.
