ALLOCATION OF CREDIT EXPOSURES
ACE comprises powerful quantitative and reporting tools for two areas: credit analysis and credit control.
The former includes the calculation of appropriate credit limits considering the capital base of the entity and certain market implied risk indicators related to the debtor. The latter allows for comprehensive, user defined, credit limit usage reporting, through the sector, region, product, time bucket and debt seniority dimensions.
