Not only is hedging an important defensive move, but if used effectively, it can be a valuable offensive strategy for your company and its shareholders. By hedging, or actively managing your company's foreign exchange exposure to protect revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities from exchange rate volatility, you can minimize disruption to the business and improve the bottom line.

With experience guiding technology and life science companies specifically on their foreign exchange strategies, the SVB team will cover risk-management best practices in this one-hour session.
