How we differentiate


Collateral: Has changed fundamentally from a credit risk mitigant and operational risk process to a critical segment of business strategy within financial markets and can be viewed as a product in its own right.

Understanding all front to back aspects of collateral is complicated, there are many facets to consider such as pricing, funding, liquidity, optimisation, operational capacity and risk. Uncleared Margin Rules have exacerbated this with their requirements such as regulatory Initial Margin, SIMM and Custody. Margin Reform will add clarity to ‘collateral’ whether to support regulations, business drivers or the enhancement of existing processes.

Margining: Legacy and out-of-date business practices have in a lot of instances left an under developed and fragmented margin strategy, strewn across internal silos.

All products in the margin sphere, derivatives, cleared and uncleared, securities lending all need to be  supported by a well-defined technology roadmap, that delivers straight-through-processing across different business functions who truly understand their role in the  ‘collateral management framework’. This is where Margin Reform want you to be.

Legal: The contracts supporting collateral and margining are inextricably linked to the success of your day to day  operations.

Ensuring the correct data is captured as golden source is critical for efficient pricing and processing. The complexity and far reaching impact of Uncleared Margin Rules has led to several issues that require better negotiation techniques, smarter technology and improved digitisation. Margin Reform are at the forefront of these solutions and can help you deliver the business process models required.
