Chapter 7. Derivatives markets. Section 7.9. Risk Management.
Risk Management
The main reasons why firms enter derivatives are: to hedge, to
speculate, and to reduce transactions costs. Managers use
derivatives taking in account their view of the market. So, a
speculative component is added to each decision.
Firms convert inputs, such a labor and raw materials, into goods
and services. A firm makes money if its income exceeds its costs.
