Over the Counter (OTC) Independent Valuation

The financial markets never stop moving. To keep up, you need to adopt new methods and use new products and services. One major change in today’s market is the increasing importance of independent valuations for OTC derivatives.

The need for an independent valuation is driven by:

  • recent regulations (e.g., Dodd-Frank Act and EMIR);
  • auditors requiring a primary and secondary source for validation; and
  • trades being executed with multiple counterparties which may require standard valuation methodology.

BNY Mellon Can Help You Keep Up with the Market

Our services cover a wide range of asset types. We provide:

  • valuations sourced from external third-party vendors;
  • BNY Mellon Internal Quantitative Valuation; or
  • valuations provided by clearing houses.

Cleared Swaps/Exchange Traded Derivatives (ETD) Margin Management

BNY Mellon understands the nuances of variation margin, and can help you reconcile that both transactions and collateral positions are aligned between your records and the clearing broker’s records.

Turn to BNY Mellon for margin management support including:
