Broadly speaking, non-U.S. entities typically have the greatest exposure to FX risk since the U.S. dollar is used for pricing and invoicing the majority of world trade. Entities outside the U.S. who produce goods valued and/or denominated in dollars (such as grains, other foods, energy, mining output, manufactured goods, etc.) or who have dollar denominated input costs (such as energy, fertilizer, metals, etc.) are required to continually convert U.S. dollars back to their domestic currency and vice versa. Additionally, dollar loans made around the world to non-U.S. entities can represent a significant risk exposure. Due to the daily volatility in the FX currency markets, conversion risk for income, interest payments, assets and liabilities can complicate budgeting, planning, and business forecasting.  In turn, this can lead to poor returns and operating losses. U.S. entities doing business abroad also can create payable or receivable risk if they are not paying or invoicing in U.S. dollars, and translation risk can arise if investments are made outside the U.S. without counter-balanced liability exposures.
