DCP intends to use position level beta and individualized liquidity score to help manage risk. For long performing credit investments, extreme downside is estimated using a jump-to-default scenario that estimates the potential loss incurred if the performing issuer defaults on its obligations. For short performing credit investments, the loss is estimated using an extreme spread tightening scenario. The Firm will consider the maximum loss that it believes can result from each position and seeks to keep total portfolio exposure within acceptable levels.
