dc.description.abstract In many countries, derivatives such as futures contracts, swaps and options contracts, among other tools have been and continue to be used by investors to hedge against fluctuations in values of their investments. In the money markets, hedging using these tools protects investors against transaction, translation and economic exposure risks that would otherwise erode the value of their investments. This study examines the use of currency options as an external exposure management (hedging) technique. It further seeks to establish whether there exist possibilities for the creation of a currency options market in Kenya. The findings show that albeit some of the conditions necessary for the establishment of a currency options market in Kenya are present, some important conditions are still lacking. It is concluded therefore that it is not possible to establish, in the near future, a currency options market in Kenya. en_US
