Abstract

This study examines the symmetric and asymmetric exchange rate exposures of Chinese automobile firms at different time horizons. Empirical findings reveal that firm returns are less likely to be affected by currency movements at short-term (daily) horizons due to restrictions on the currency daily trading band, but (a)symmetric exchange rate exposures appear to be significant at relatively longer horizons after the launch of RMB internationalisation, particularly for monthly horizons. Possible hedging strategies could be the application of Forward Exchange Agreements, price difference between onshore and offshore RMB exchange rate, foreign reserves and other quantitative methods. Since returns of foreign capital shares tend to rise with the application of RMB, firms may also consider listing shares on foreign stock exchange in addition to the domestic market and produce products simultaneously in foreign nations through international expansion.
