The Company's exposures to credit risk arise from holdings of cash and cash equivalents and other receivables.

Exposure to Credit Risk

The carrying value of financial assets, as set out in Note 4.3, represents the maximum credit exposure. No collateral is held as security against these assets.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company's exposure to credit risk on cash and cash equivalents is managed by investing in banks and financial institutions with strong credit ratings and by regular review of counterparty risk.

Other Receivables

Other receivables at the end of both periods consist primarily of amounts due from subsidiary undertakings. Management provides for irrecoverable debts when there are indicators that a balance may not be recoverable.

The ageing of other receivables at the balance sheet date is set out below:
