Italian term or phrase: esposizione a sistema
From a presentation on the financial performance of a supermarket chain; unfortunately there is no other context relative to this sentence, it is all on its own in a little box :)

"Buon livello di copertura delle passività finanziarie e dell’esposizione a sistema."
am baffled by the last part, any ideas would be gratefully received!
TIA

exposure to [market] prices
Explanation:
sistema is a pretty broad term. esposizione also. esposizione could be negative (exposure to risk) or positive (visibility to market).

given the context - talking about liabilities/risks - my instinct is that it is talking about exposure to market risks which for a supermarket maybe referring above all to pricing. For example, prices for produce (fruit, vegetables, etc.) which are highly volatile and can change from day to day. I think it is talking about the sistema dei prezzi.
