VenturiSM by State Street (peer-to-peer)

As a result of the changing liquidity and rate environment, buy-side firms are increasingly seeking new sources of financing in an efficient manner. Venturi by State Street offers innovative financing structures and analytic capabilities that empower the buy side to interact on their own terms in a changing market.

Venturi peer-to-peer (P2P) repo brings new liquidity opportunities to repo markets by directly connecting participants (or “peers”) on a stable, secured and trusted system. Participants trade bilaterally; State Street guarantees the payment of the repurchase price to the buyer, inclusive of proceeds from liquidating the repo securities.

Venturi’s liquidity optimization tools also offer solutions to drive greater portfolio transparency and decision-making through its margin analytics and optimization modules in derivative and collateral trading.
