Collateral Management


Our Collateral+ solution provides a complete, technology-driven collateral management service for all your trading needs. While providing effective exposure management in all market environments, we combine pre- and post-trade optimization tools with buy-side focused services to help you manage counterparty exposure, monitor collateral needs and eligibility, and coordinate an optimized approach to collateral and inventory management. Our customizable reporting suite provides a full range of real time and point in time reporting to meet all your internal and external obligations.

Exposure management
Our core process includes electronic maintenance of credit support documents, exposure agreement and management, reconciliation tools and automated intra-day position updates. We value collateral balances, calculate residual exposures, issue collateral calls and respond to collateral requirements and inquiries with counterparties. Collateral+ also offers reconciliation of positions and valuation (including: Unclear Margin Rules-specific services), resolving valuation disputes, processing collateral settlements, as well as sweeping cash collateral into cash reinvestments.

Triparty services
With our new triparty service, we support you to effectively manage the collateralization process for multiple products, strategies, counterparties and enabling significant transaction volumes through our automated state-of-the-art optimization technology. This process allows automated collateral selection, valuation and margin call management. We manage accounts (either one of, or both trading counterparties) and manage the transfers between them in accordance with agreed upon optimization rules set by the two counterparties.

Third-party segregation services
As a collateral custodian, we support you with settlement, validation, segregation and reporting services to meet any type of margin management requirement.

Optimization and analytics
Our algorithmic collateral optimization ensures that available collateral is used in the most efficient manner. We minimize your overall collateral requirements and funding costs by suggesting optimal trade placements through margin optimization on a post-trade level, as well as enabling pre-trade portfolio analysis and impact analysis techniques to optimize your trading portfolio. Based on your requirements, our collateral optimization solution can upgrade to source collateral to meet margin needs or downgrade collateral to monetize unutilized, high-quality collateral.
