    The goal of the article is development of the mechanism of managing currency risks of international investment activity. Analysing the existing methods of assessment and minimisation of risks of international investment activity, the article identifies their shortcomings and advantages. Based on the conducted analysis of methodical risk-management instruments, the article develops a mechanism of managing risks of international investment activity, the main stages of which are: analysis of factors that influence structural elements of risk; identification and analysis of currency risks; assessment of currency risks through identification of the total amount of the open currency position, specific weight of foreign currency expressed in UAH, correlation ratio between the rates of the "i" and "j" foreign currency with respect to the national one and minimisation of currency risks and monitoring. The presented risk-management mechanism allows a detailed analysis of the risk, its assessment and timely minimisation for increase of the general effectiveness of international investment activity.
