transaction exposure management

Transaction exposure management is the hedging of future FX-denominated cash flows that result from contractually binding transactions, whether or not the corresponding receivables/payables have been created.

In transaction exposure management, currency forwards are booked for SO/POs (sales orders/purchase orders) and/or AR/AP (accounts receivable/accounts payable).

Transaction exposure management requires constant vigilance, as new orders keep on arriving. It is best implemented with Currency Management Automation solutions that allow firms to monitor and hedge their FX transaction exposure in any currency pair, whatever the number of transactions and their size.
