Standardised OTC derivative contracts must now be cleared through central counterparties and many activities and transactions that previously had no collateral requirements now need to be collateralised. In addition, initial margin should be segregated with a third party and correctly allocating and holding the right margin amount has become important. We can help you navigate these changes.

Dynamic By Design

Our collateral segregation services combine the safety of segregated accounts with dynamic system capabilities that help optimise collateral use, while also facilitating the mitigation of counterparty, market and operational risk. You are provided with independent collateral safekeeping for margin positions through separate custody accounts and tri-party pledge/title transfer models.
