    Abstract

    A number of studies have examined the risk management practices within non-financial companies. This research is a comparative study of derivative usage among UK and Italian non-financial listed SMEs over the time period 2005-2012. The aspects it refers concern the management of financial risks which to date (in Italy) has been little studied from the point of view of literature because of the paucity of data. The aim of this research is to provide evidence for UK and Italian non-financial listed SMEs on the determinants of hedging and on the types of financial derivatives used as hedging instruments.
