[Autom. eng. transl.] Financial risk management and coverage decisions can lead to the definition of different strategies. This work examines the operational and financial strategies used by Italian listed industrial companies in addressing the exchange rate risk in the period between 2007 and 2012. The proxy variables of the operational strategies, classically medium-long term, have been identified in the number ( breadth) and concentration (depth) of foreign subsidiaries. The short-term financial ones are represented by the quantification of the net value declared in the financial statements of all foreign exchange derivatives. From the results obtained, financial hedging is a very effective tool in reducing risk exposure, while operational hedging loses significance when the breadth and depth characteristics of foreign subsidiaries are considered together.
