Recommending a Short-Term Foreign Investment
Suppose the treasurer of your company finds out you are enrolled in BUS450 International Finance. Knowing this, your treasurer seeks your advice. Your company has extra cash reserves of $100,000,000 and needs to invest it for 6 months. The treasurer has heard that investing in foreign currencies for the short term might have a higher yield when compared to a short-term United States investment. Research the following:
· US 6 month interest rate
· 6-month interest rate of a country of your choosing
· spot exchange rate of your selected currency relative to the US Dollar
· six-month forward exchange rate per the US Dollar.
Prepare a proposal to your treasurer that outlines your research and recommendation. Provide calculations where necessary to support your recommendation. Summarize your findings in a three- to five- page paper, not including title and references pages. Be sure to properly cite your resources using APA style.
