Explanation:
I am providing the following explanation which should lead you ojn to further web searches in the right direction. Have you tried the stock exchange glossaries?

Currency overlay management is a way of protecting currency exposure, the risk of holding assets in foreign currency. The risk arises out of the fact that in relation to the host country's currency, that or those of the foreign assets may be unstable. (See first site below where protection is being sought against a strong USD and in the second one where hedging is used to protect against adverse market movements, DM).

Note that it is possible to hedge against currency exposure by selling foreign currency on the forward markets, futures.

hedge = "se couvrir" : utilisé dans le domaine des marchés à terme et de l'exportation : se couvrir d'un risuqe de fluctuation des cours ou des monnaies

a hedger : "opérateur en couverture"

hedging : "couverture" (d'un risque)

forward cover : "couverture à terme"

future rate agreement (F.R.A.) : accord de taux futur (A.T.F.) : contrat où l'une des parties garantit à l'autre le montant d'un taux d'intéret à une date déterminée, ce qui revient à une opération dfe couverture contre l'évolution des taux

(foreign) exposure = "risque" : le risque (de taux) de change. (Foreign exchange exposure)
