Exposure definition

In trading and investment, exposure refers to the degree of risk an investor has in a particular asset or market. In other words, it is the amount of money that is subject to potential loss due to market volatility, unfavourable price movements, or other types of risk.

 

Exposure can also refer to the total value of an investor’s holdings in a particular asset or market, which is the total size of their positions. For example, an investor who purchases a significant number of shares of a company is said to have a large exposure to that stock.

 

How to minimise exposure in the market

With greater exposure to the market comes greater risk of substantial losses should market prices fluctuate. There are several risk management techniques investors can implement to manage their exposure in the market. They include portfolio diversification, the use of stop-loss orders, hedging, and staying up to date with market developments.

 

Diversification: Investors can diversify their portfolio by investing in a variety of assets across sectors and asset classes to reduce the impact of any single asset performing adversely. This limits their exposure to any single market, which can help spread their risk of investing.

 

Using stop-loss orders: A stop-loss order is an instruction to automatically sell an asset when it reaches a certain price level. Investors who set stop-loss orders can help limit potential losses.

 

Hedging: Hedging is the process in which an investor takes a position in the market that correlates negatively with an existing position. This can help offset the risk in the existing position.

 

Staying up to date with market developments: Keeping up with market developments such as economic and political developments around the world can help investors identify trading opportunities and potential risks.

Investing in CFDs involves a high degree of risk that you will lose your money due to the use of leverage, particularly in fast moving markets, where a relatively small movement in the price can lead to a proportionately larger movement in the value of your investment. This can result in loses that exceed the funds in your account. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and you should seek independent advice if necessary.
