Formatted abstract
Gold loan was a popular form of project financing for gold mining firms in Australia during the late 1980s. Its attractiveness lied in its• natural hedging capability. This unique combination of debt and hedge provided a unique opportunity in combining capital structure and hedging theories. The main hypothesis proposed in this thesis was that gold loans enabled firms to maintain a higher level of leverage than that predicted by the capital structure theory. Empirical results found by comparing gold loan firms and non gold loan firms confirmed the hypothesised effect.
