Persia and Anshan, at that time, were still subject to the Median Empire, but Cyrus led a revolt against the Median king Astyages, and in bc captured the Median capital, Ecbatana modern Hamadan. Cyrus reversed the relationship between Media and Persia—he crowned himself king of Persia, making Persia the center of the empire and Media the junior partner.

Introduction Coupled with globalisation of business, the raising of capital from the international capital markets has assumed significant proportion during the recent years.
The volume of finance raised from international capital market is steadily increasing over a period of years, across the national boundaries.
Every day new institutions are emerging on the international financial scenario and introducing new derivative financial instruments products to cater to the requirements of multinational organisations and the foreign investors. To accommodate the underlying demands of investors and capital raisers, financial institutions and instruments have also changed dramatically.
Financial deregulation, first in the United States and then in Europe and Asia, has prompted increased integration of world financial markets. As a result of the rapidly changing scenario, the finance manager today has to be global in his approach.
In consonance with these remarkable changes, the Government of India has also opened Indian economy to foreign investments and has taken a number of bold and drastic measures to globalise the Indian economy. Various fiscal, trade and industrial policy decisions have been taken and new avenues provided to foreign investors like Foreign Institutional Investors FII's and NRI's etc.
The basic principles of financial management i. However the difference lies in the environment in which these multi-national organisations function. The environment relates to political risks, Government's tax and investment policies, foreign exchange risks and sources of finance etc.
These are some of the crucial issues which need to be considered in the effective management of international financial transactions and investment decisions.
He has to search for "best price" in a global market place environment through various tools and techniques. Sometimes he uses currency and other hedges to optimise the utilisation of financial resources at his command. However, the problems to be faced by him in the perspective of financial management of the multinational organisations are slightly more complex than those of domestic organisations.
While the concepts developed earlier in the previous chapters are also applicable here, the environment in which decisions are made in respect of international financial management is different and it forms the subject matter of this chapter for discussion.
In this chapter we shall describe how a finance manager can protect his organisation from the vagaries of international financial transactions.
Foreign Exchange Market The foreign exchange market is the market in which individuals, firms and banks buy and sell foreign currencies or foreign exchange. The purpose of the foreign exchange market is to permit transfers of purchasing power denominated in one currency to another i. For example, a Japanese exporter sells automobiles to a U.
Ultimately, however, the U. Because it would be inconvenient for the individual buyers and sellers of foreign exchange to seek out one another, a foreign exchange market has developed to act as an intermediary.
Transfer of purchasing power is necessary because international trade and capital transactions usually involve parties living in countries with different national currencies.
Each party wants to trade and deal in his own currency but since the trade can be invoiced only in a single currency, the parties mutually agree on a currency beforehand.
The currency agreed could also be any convenient third country currency such as the US dollar. For, if an Indian exporter sells machinery to a UK importer, the exporter could invoice in pound, rupees or any other convenient currency like the US dollar.
But why do individuals, firms and banks want to exchange one national currency for another? The demand for foreign currencies arises when tourists visit another country and need to exchange their national currency for the currency of the country they are visiting or when a domestic firm wants to import from other nations or when an individual wants to invest abroad and so on.
On the other hand, a nation's supply of foreign currencies arises from foreign tourist expenditures in the nation, from export earnings, from receiving foreign investments, and so on.
The US exporter will exchange the pounds for dollars at a commercial bank. The commercial bank will then sell these pounds for dollars to a US resident who is going to visit the UK or to a United States firm that wants to import from the UK and pay in pounds, or to a US investor who wants to invest in the UK and needs the pounds to make the investment.If, for instance, both India and the USA experience 10% inflation, the exchange rate between rupee and dollar will remain the same.
If inflation in India is 15% and in the USA it is 10%, the increase in prices would be higher in India than it is in the USA. Therefore, the rupee will depreciate in value relative to US dollar. of the Swiss Franc vis-à-vis the firm’s home currency will be closely matched by the gain.
