Counterparty Risk Optimisation
Counterparty Risk Optimisation

Market participants in OTC derivatives face increasing challenges.

Counterparty credit risk impacts a firm’s cost of trading due to SA-CCR capital requirements, RWA, Leverage Ratio and Initial Margin, facing bilateral counterparties and clearinghouses.

We can help reduce counterparty and systemic risks and enable more efficient use of operational resources according to your individual preferences. A multilateral solution to provide optimum efficiency, our service is supported by the largest network of dealers optimising IM/UMR and Capital/SA-CCR exposures for FX, Interest Rates, Equity Credit and commodities. Web-based, with no software installation necessary, we use a simple, trusted and uniform process, allowing you to achieve more scalability without increasing resources.

Our easy to use solution enables you to address the key issues that drive the cost of maintaining a portfolio simultaneously:

  • Capital costs, driven by leverage ratio as well as standardised and internal model-driven Risk Weighted Assets (RWA) via SA-CCR and (IMM)
  • Funding costs – resulting from non-cleared margin and CCP IM
  • Gross exposures impacting G-SIB, balance sheet, and general housekeeping

Capital Exposure

Unlike non-cleared margin exposures, bilateral RWA and Leverage Ratio exposures are not actively reconciled by the industry. Exposures are therefore less aligned, which negatively impacts the efficiency of optimisation and therefore, the ability of the market to actively manage and bring these exposures down.

To counter this, we now offer capital exposure reconciliation – a centralised service to reconcile SA-CCR and capital exposures. Customers can benefit from improved counterparty credit risk data quality, enabling our client network to compare and verify the size and direction of exposures, and thus to increase the efficiency and accuracy of capital optimisation.
