This paper presents a model of a competitive risk-averse exporting firm under exchange rate risk. We show that export and hedging decisions can be separated if futures and currency options are available. A full hedge of uncertain export revenue occurs if the futures market is unbiased and the currency option premium is fair. Furthermore, institutional aspects of introducing hedging markets are presented.
