What is Economic Exposure?
How Does Economic Exposure Work?
The extent to which a company may be affected by economic exposure depends very much on the company's specific industry and business interests.
Say Company XYZ is a business importing goods from Japan to sell in the United States. If the Japanese yen were gain against the dollar, it would make it more expensive for Company XYZ to purchase goods for import, thereby hurting its operations.
Why Does Economic Exposure Matter?
Economic exposure matters most to companies conducting foreign business, as it directly impacts their operations. However, with increased global trade, the effects of economic exposure are felt by all consumers as it can impact the prices paid for foreign goods.
