For  the assignment this week, tell me why Communication and Risk Management  would be important to understand as an executive of a publicly traded  company. I want you to SPECIFICALLY ADDRESS HEDGING in this assignment.  What is hedging and how could it be used as a risk management function  in a publicly traded company.  (Make sure that you look at rubric and  follow the rubric and see the comments below). This assignment will be  used as a DRAFT that will be used in your final project. Keep in mind  that, in this small summary, you will generally talk about why these  things are important to understand in a publicly traded company. 

This  does not need to be written as a formal research summary, but all  research provided does need to be cited in APA format. You may write in  the first person because you are presenting your own ideas. You do not  need to provide an abstract
