Vogl Co A+ rated
$ 10.00

Vogl Co. recognizes that its year-to-year hedging strategy hedges the risk only over

a given year and does not insulate it from long-term trends in the Canadian dollar’s

value. It has considered establishing a subsidiary in Canada. The goods would be sent

from the United States to the Canadian subsidiary and distributed by the subsidiary.

The proceeds received would be reinvested by the Canadian subsidiary in Canada. In

this way, Vogl Co. would not have to convert Canadian dollars to U.S. dollars each

year. Has Vogl eliminated its exposure to exchange rate risk by using this strategy?
