Unlock Value with Collateral Optimization

Our experts explain how optimization can minimize costs and free up inventory to enhance returns.

December 2020

For buy-side institutions, collateral optimization represents a significant opportunity to create efficiencies and enhance returns.

In a revenue-constrained environment driven by persistently low rates and increased margin requirements, sophisticated collateral optimization has moved past cheapest-to-deliver strategies. Leading institutions now use algorithms to minimize the cost of meeting collateral requirements. But technology is just one piece of the puzzle.

A strong foundation of data is critical to the success of the program, and tools to optimize margin can ultimately have a big impact on the bottom line. Done right, institutions can not only minimize costs, they can unlock value in their portfolios by capitalizing on newly freed up inventory.
