Since overweight / underweight are rather ambiguous terms,
they are mostly avoided in the financial context. Instead 'overweighted' or 'underweighted' positions is used, or alternatively:
'overexposure/overexposed' and 'underexposure/underexposed', which is what I prefer to use in my own translations.
Sorry I was too late to add my two cents worth!

Sorry Jarry, take this from an experienced “Börsianer”. We are talking about investment funds here. In this context underweight(ed) or underinvested is used.
For instance, the xyz fund was a little underinvested in technology.
His position in xyz stock was a little overweighted.
Because of the risk, the fund underweighted it’s position in japanese shares.
Exposed is used if you have an unhedged stock or currency position. Then you are exposed to adverse market movement.
You are overexposed to adverse market movements if you haven’t written any covered calls.
I was an account executive for the largest investment banks in the world for over one and a half decade. I remember too well what it means to be overexposed to Dollar movements!!
