34.1. 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 the financial instruments it itself administers. The main functions of the MAN and PHS subgroups are included in Group Treasury’s operational risk management and control for risks relating to financial instruments, while the Scania subgroup is only included to an extremely limited extent. All of these subgroups also have their own risk management structures. The Executive Committee for Liquidity and Foreign Currency 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.
