The yen is now one of the major currencies freely traded in the world, and yet, many Japanese exporters take on a currency risk by invoicing in US dollars. In this book, the authors examine why this is the case, particularly for those exporters who have a strong presence in global markets.

Managing Currency Risk enhances our understanding of exporters? behaviour by analysing the key factors that influence their choice of invoice currency. Detailed research based on unique data sets is used to highlight how firm size, product competitiveness, intra/inter-firm trade and the geography of export destination impact this decision.

This book is a valuable resource for international finance researchers and political economists wishing to discover up-to-date information regarding currency invoicing by multinational firms. It will also be a vital tool for financial and governmental practitioners to discover more about their competitors? behaviour.

'This is an important book that gives us a detailed look into why Japanese firms do business. Rather than just rely on regressions, the authors do something rarely seen in economics: they talk to their data by conducting surveys and interviews with Japanese firms. This method adds a tremendous richness to their analysis.'
--David E Weinstein, Columbia University, US

'This book is a spectacular achievement. Based on unique interviews and questionnaire surveys, it provides various insights on the invoicing currency behavior of Japanese exporters. It will be useful not only for academic research but also for policymakers.' --Shin-ichi Fukuda, University of Tokyo, Japan

'This book employs new data sets based on both interviews and questionnaire surveys of Japanese manufacturing firms operating globally. The information is used to obtain novel and convincing findings regarding the determinants of invoice currency choice and currency risk management by focusing on export destination, arm's-length vs. intra-firm trades, and types of subsidiaries.'
--Eiji Ogawa, Hitotsubashi University, Japan
