Show Summary Details


A selective, critical survey is provided of the academic literature on the financial management policy of multinational enterprises (MNEs). The focus of much of the current research is the two major themes of financial management policy in relation to the increasing volatility of real and financial asset prices in the international financial environment of MNEs; and international market segmentation. The main parts of the chapter discuss the enhanced importance of recent increases in asset price volatility, the classification and management of risk exposure, the management of financial risk by MNEs, and issues relating to the effective implementation of a risk management system within the governance structure of an MNE.
