Portfolio Reconciliation & Collateral Management Update Issue 1 – 2023

Collateral Managers have been balancing busy ‘to do’ lists in recent years. Much of this was derived from global Uncleared Margin Rules (UMR) which introduced new requirements to calculate and post Initial Margin (IM), and an associated focus on portfolio integrity. With the regulatory priority moving to the rear view mirror for many firms – and yet to impact for some – and the impact yet to be felt for others – the focus for all should be about ensuring that operational processes are updated, and that firms are well placed to support growing business needs with high levels of system automation.

If you’re not already using OSTTRA triResolve Margin service to support your end to end collateral process – from margin calculation to settlement – or you would like to find out more, please contact the OSTTRA team.
