Abstract

Purpose

Design/methodology/approach

This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context.

Findings

In the shadow of the credit crunch, and broker will tell their client the advantages of a diversified portfolio to spread the risk. $100 for a barrel of oil? Buy oil stocks. Global credit uncertainty? Buy gold. Aging populations? Sell stock in coffin manufacturers. However while such hedging is an obvious move for many organizations in terms of their corporate strategy in such volatile times, standard models tend to focus on preventing catastrophe, or simply keeping up with the pace. But what if you have your strategic advantage and want to keep it, thank you very much?

Practical implications

The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format.
