Analysis Of Exposure To Currency Risk At The Level Of A Banking Unit
Reducing of the restrictions regarding the circulation of capital as well as relaxation of controls of currency has resulted in a significant increase of transactions of foreign exchange on international financial markets. Thus, in the context of an enhanced volatility of the exchange rates, it is important use of some performing methods of management of currency risk. The purpose of the article is to present an analysis of the situation of the currency risk in a commercial bank, by establishing individual and global currency positions. In this respect, we used specific methods for the calculation of currency risk indicators, on the basis of the synthesis documents and we determined their level, in order to establish the extent of the bank's exposure to this type of risk. Thus, the bank elaborates policies and effective procedures for determining limits of the exposure to currency risk. In conditions of the existence of a controllable level of risk by the unfavourable evolution of exchange rates, the bank may record a normal trend of growth of profits from a period to another and can limit potential losses.
