For this reason, what is required for MNCs most in today’s uncertain environment is gaining and sustaining the competitive advantage that effectively deals with the heightened uncertainties of the global economy. During times of uncertain environmental conditions, such as abrupt changes in foreign exchange rates, and factor and product market conditions, MNCs may extract benefits from their geographically dispersed subsidiaries by either reducing the risk via dispersed investments or adjusting and shifting their value chain activities across different subsidiary locations.
We propose that both geographic risk diversification theory and real options theory can have more meaningful managerial implications if we examine the two theories in conjunction with the choice of ownership. From the viewpoint of geographical risk diversification theory, it is imperative that MNCs treat each subsidiary as independent from one other; otherwise, the intention of preserving uncorrelated risk among subsidiaries is violated. In this sense, it makes more sense for MNCs to be locally responsive to ensure that each subsidiary further reduces the risk of being similar.
