Regulatory fall-out from the credit crisis and the ongoing economic meltdown in Europe are thrusting collateral management (CM) into the spotlight. Historically a stand-alone function primarily focused on mitigating counterparty credit risk, CM is becoming an integral component of trading, liquidity management, market risk and financing activities.
An enterprise-wide, cross-product CM environment can help transform a historically high-cost support function into a proactive profit center across OTC, ETD, financing and prime brokerage business units. Capco has demonstrated expertise in CM centralization, founded on a deep understanding of best practices and organizational, technological and regulatory impacts.
As a leader in derivatives transformation, we can help you integrate the foundational changes required for central counterparty clearing, including straight-through processing from swap execution facilities to clearing, margining and submission to industry trade repositories.
