37.1. Hedging guidelines and financial risk management principles
The principles and responsibilities for managing and controlling the risks that could arise from financial instruments are defined by the Board of Management and monitored by the Supervisory Board. General rules apply to the Group-wide risk policy; these are oriented on the statutory requirements and the “Minimum Requirements for Risk Management by Credit Institutions”.
Group Treasury is responsible for operational risk management and control of risks from financial instruments. The Risk Management Group Executive Committee is regularly informed about current financial risks. In addition, the Group Board of Management and the Supervisory Board are regularly updated on the current risk situation. Some functions of the Scania, MAN and PHS subgroups are included in Group Treasury’s operational risk management and control for risks relating to financial instruments. Subgroups have their own risk management structures.
