Posted: 14 May 2014
The collateral optimization challenge
The requirement for financial institutions to pledge collateral is likely to increase significantly over the coming months as the financial derivatives market continues to move towards the new central clearing model imposed by regulations such as Dodd-Frank and EMIR. As higher collateral requirements impact financial institutions, eligible assets will be in shorter supply. Extra timing complexities when fulfilling margin calls are being introduced as a result of new regulations. This makes it important to move to periodic intraday at a minimum, or real-time valuation of collateral.
