minimize the cost of posting assets across all your margined relationships.
What is Collateral Optimization?
When starting a collateral management function, the focus is on getting up and running to make margin calls and cover exposure.
Moving to the next level means taking a hard look at the assets you deliver to cover incoming margin calls and making a smart decision on what is provided.
This service gives your team the ability to allocate assets to incoming margin calls using two models:
- Waterfall ranking by ranking
- Fully optimized by algorithm
Inputs to the optimizer include:
Collateral cost rules including funding and movements
Agreement eligibility rules
Asset valuations (from your systems)
Exposure requirements (from your systems)
The waterfall model
Requires more input from operators and combines asset ranking with your allocation selections. Rankings can include asset types, currency, country, rating and issuer
The algorithmic optimizer
