[Infographic] 3 Steps To Cut Cost With FX Exposure Netting

money payIf your investment portfolio contains multiple types of currency, you are likely already familiar with the associated risk. If one country’s currency drastically depreciates in value, you are stuck with a depreciating portfolio as well.

While there will always be an element of risk associated with investing and working with foreign currencies, there are several steps you can take to mitigate the amount you have on the line:

1. Convert as You Go.

Do all your large-scale accounting in one currency. Sum up all receipts and receivables in your business’ base currency.

2. Advanced Conversion.

Sum up receipts and receivables for each currency separately. Then execute a single hedge for each currency in your portfolio. 

3. FX Exposure Netting.

Hedge functional currency pairs together. Over time, this greatly reduces your risk.
