Abstract: This dissertation aims to understand and analyse the use of the Foreign Exchange Market by non-financial corporations that regularly deal with different currencies from economic and financial transactions carried out with clients, suppliers, banks and other parties. This dissertation analyses the evolution of the forex markets and the associated risks of operating in foreign currencies as well as investigates strategies that can be adopted by corporations to cope with those risks. The information about the forex impact and risks on the business units were gathered using a qualitative research approach based in interviews made with professionals of the industry, namely, FX Salesmen and Corporate Hedging strategists. It is imperative that corporations are able to use the financial market effectively as it is essential in today’s global economy.
