The experience of operating a business during the COVID-19 pandemic has contextualized the meaning of risk for many business owners. Business has always been a risk-reward trade-off, but successful businesses understand which risks are the ones that are worth it: innovative R&D, investing in building inspiring corporate culture, a ground-breaking advertising campaign. And they make a conscious decision to remove the risks that aren’t at the core of their business purpose: things like interest rate and currency uncertainty that could threaten their cash flow and ultimately the business itself. In this episode of Market Points, Scott Morrison, Managing Director and Head, Commercial Derivative Products and FX Sales at Scotiabank, explains how hedging strategies work to keep businesses moving through uncertain times.
