Incurring, managing and monitoring risks are an integral part of the business activities performed by Würth Finance International B.V. The objective is not to completely eliminate all risks arising from movements in exchange rates, interest rates and stock prices, but much rather to achieve a healthy balance between risk and return.
In order to lessen the financial risk and to optimise income, derivative financial instruments are used. For this, our specialists have state-of-the-art financial information and risk monitoring systems at their disposal.
The Group companies receive comprehensive advice relating to financial market risks arising from their operative core business. Hedging transactions are entered into with respect to the following risks:
- exchange rate fluctuations
- changes in the interest rate
- fluctuations in commodity prices
