Repatriation

The act of an individual or company bringing foreign capital into a home country and converting it to the domestic currency. Generally speaking, an individual who repatriates capital is usually converting foreign earnings into his/her home country's currency, perhaps in the process of moving back to the home country after having a job abroad. A company that repatriates capital is usually bringing over the returns on foreign investment. Repatriation can expose the individual or company to foreign exchange risk.
