Foreign exchange exposure, Financial Management

Using an appropriate 'factor model', assess (a) the performance of the management in creating value for shareholders and (b) the extent of the foreign exchange exposure of a FTSE100 company of your choice.

The following - while not intended to be entirely prescriptive - is intended to give you some idea of what your assignment should include.

  • An introduction that states the goals of your project - what are you setting out to explain? - and mentions any relevant literature (please do not include a long literature review, keep it focused and concise!). 
  • An explanation of the specification of your model.

o  Why did you choose these particular independent variables?
o  Why these particular functional forms?
o  What a priori hypotheses do you have?
o  What are the expected signs according to the underlying theory, etc?

  • Data.

o  A short description identifying data sources and any problems with these data.

  • Your results. (If you test a number of specifications, be sure to identify which you see as the best of these.)

o  An analysis of the results that includes a discussion of econometric problems encountered and tests that you have undertaken. The main results should be tabulated as done in academic research papers.

o  What is the significance of the results and how do they relate to the original questions posed in the introduction?
o  Are they consistent with the theory?
o  Is the model statistically adequate in representing the data?

  • A short summary & conclusions that includes your major findings and suggestions for further research.
  • A (short!) bibliography
  • An appendix which includes all regression runs and all relevant output. (In the case of very extensive listings, you may choose to supply these electronically.)
