    Between the Delloite 2016 Global FX Survey and the FIREapps Q4 2015 Currency Impact Report, it appears that treasurers and CFO's have resigned themselves to accepting emerging markets currency risks. A deeper dive into the surveys reveals that the FX exposures to hedge (if known because its too expensive to track) can't necessarily be trusted (can't verify hedging numbers), and the high volatility price of EM currency pairs makes it difficult. My advice to those with responsibility for hedging currency exposures is to budget for currency exposure reporting software for 2017, put in place a hedging policy and procedure document that is board approved, and ensure that zero cost collars are utilized to hedge EM exposures.
