Market Exposure

Market Exposure

1. The amount of money one risks in an investment. For example, if one invests $10,000 in a stock, one accepts a market exposure of $10,000. One also may speak of being exposed to particular type of risk. For example, if one invests in a bond, one is exposed to the risk that inflation will outpace the yield on the bond.

2. The proportion of a portfolio or fund invested in a single company or industry. For example, if 50% of one's portfolio consists of financial stocks, one has a 50% market exposure. Most investors seek diversification so as to avoid "over-exposure" in any one industry. See also: Markowitz Portfolio Theory.
