Undocumented in the literature, we show that the effectiveness of firms' hedging activities depends on the underlying characteristics (e.g., direction) of firms' expected exchange rate exposure that reflects exchange rate risk associated with firmsâ inherent business prior to the usage of hedging activities. While firms with positive expected exposure reduce their exposure through currency derivatives, internal transactions with foreign subsidiaries, and foreign currency debt financing, firms with negative expected exposure do so only through exchange rate pass-through activities. Our results strongly suggest that both the conditions in the product markets (e.g., export, import, and profit margin) and the direction of exchange rate exposure be considered to uncover the effectiveness of hedging activities.
