Course Description

Enterprise Limits, a component of the Calypso Enterprise Risk Solution (ERS) suite, is a cost-effective, efficient solution for limits management across the enterprise. The Calypso Enterprise Limits solution includes both the Market Risk Limits and Credit Risk Limits modules.


Calypso Enterprise Market Risk Limits allows you to set, monitor and manage limits on Positions, P&L, Greeks, Value at Risk, and Stress Scenarios using configurable aggregation hierarchies on attributes such as product, book, currency, country and sector. Trading activity oversight takes place using a configurable dashboard that can be customized to display real-time alerts to the appropriate limits monitoring groups.


The Calypso Enterprise Credit Limits module provides comprehensive solutions for monitoring and managing real-time limits across a variety of risk categories: Settlement Risk, Credit Exposure, Issuer Risk, and Tenor Risk. Calypso Enterprise Credit Limits supports counterparty and netting hierarchies, and has extensive excess management workflow capabilities to ensure that appropriate action is always taken in the event of a limits breach.


The benefits of using Calypso Enterprise Limits include:

  • Rich desk-level functionality to support decisions on a trade or portfolio basis
  • Real-time limit control for monitoring and managing risks in counterparty, issuer, market, credit, and other bespoke trading situations
  • Holistic risk management of limit types on a single application
  • Exposure consolidation across measures
  • Geographic, industry, and rating type exposure concentration in real-time
  • Enterprise limits defined at any level–trader, desk, book, entity and by currency, product/group, or source system
  • Controllable transparency adhering to a “four-eyes” principle
