International Finance A Casebook by Mihir A. Desai

These case studies offer a unique perspective on making financial decisions in a globalizing world. The cases build the basics of understanding international financial markets - including the economics of exchange rates and international asset allocation - and then consider how firm financing and investment decisions must adapt to international circumstances. The cases provide the opportunity to consider the most critical firm financial decisions - from foreign exchange hedging strategies, the financing of multinational firm subsidiaries, cross-border valuation, to how to measure and manage the risks of operating in emerging markets.
