For the purposes of this Chapter, a person manages financial risk if they:
(a) manage the financial consequences to them of particular circumstances happening; or
(b) avoid or limit the financial consequences of fluctuations in, or in the value of, receipts or costs (including prices and interest rates).
Note 1: Examples of actions that constitute managing a financial risk are:
(a) taking out insurance; or
(b) hedging a liability by acquiring a futures contract or entering into a currency swap.
Note 2: An example of an action that does not constitute managing a financial risk is employing a security firm (while that is a way of managing the risk that thefts will happen, it is not a way of managing the financial consequences if thefts do occur).
