EXPOSURE, generally, is the extent to which a product is kept in the public eye through the press, radio, television, and public appearances. In finance, exposure refers to the amount that a business or person can lose. For example: in foreign exchange, it refers to the degree to which a company is affected by exchange rate changes.
BLIND RECEIVING is a method to ensure more accurate warehouse receipt counts, i.e., PO quantities or items are not displayed on receiving tickets.
OFF-BOOK PARTNERSHIP is a type of blind trust. It offers some advantages over the traditional methods of capital procurement. In some cases there is a fatal lack of transparency (e.g. Enron) that allows off-book partners to hide debts, pump profits, launder money and enrich insiders, but ultimately bankrupting the company and stripping assets from its employees' pension funds.
