UMR Survey Q4 2020 – Variation Margin

UMR Survey Q4 2020 – Variation Margin

As part of Margin Reform’s ongoing strategy to support and influence the financial services industry, we joined forces with Institutional Investor to complete an industry temperature check during Q4 2020 on Uncleared Margin Rules (UMR) to assess industry readiness and inform project delivery programmes.

Each week we will share the anonymous results to give you a view and see any trends emerging. We will keep the survey open till September 2022 and each quarter provide you with all updates on new respondents feedback.

Please take the UMR survey here and we will provide you with a free customised report on your answers.

Let’s kick off with looking at the results to this question: “What workflow solution do you have today for Variation Margin collateral management?”

I am not surprised to see many buy-side firms not using “best of breed” vendors in collateral management. There are great solutions out there to buy off the shelf with a low cost to implement and get going on them. Please reach out to Chetan Joshi if you want to find out more.
