Counterparty credit exposure (CCE) is a big issue it's why you have credit limits. When you lend money the risk is clear, will you get repaid? But with over the counter derivatives (like swaps) credit exposures are harder to see but nevertheless they are real. Derivatives with positive mark-to-market values generate credit risk. Why? Because default by the counterparty puts your profit at risk. One solution is collateral management. This involves a regular trade portfolio valuation and a net exchange of margin or collateral between the two parties involved.
