Dakota was engaged by a PE owned business that distributes Chinese manufactured equipment throughout Europe, with USD and RMB denominated costs.
We undertook a comprehensive review to understand underlying currency exposures, the existing risk management approach and the objectives of the PE Sponsor.
We then assisted the management team to develop a new approach that was:
Codified in a new, concise policy document; and
Supported by an FX model to be used by the client going forward.
