Abstract:The topic of this thesis concerns the effect of hedging with foreign currency derivatives on firm value of 93 Dutch firms that publicly listed non-financial in 2012. For this purpose, Firm value is measured by Tobin’s Q, a hedging dummy variable is as a proxy for foreign currency derivatives and other control variables that can affect firm value are considered as well. Then a linear regression is performed on the data to investigate the impact of hedging with FCD on firm value. The results from my research show that hedging with FCD may decrease the firm value.
