SmartStream helpt bij risicovermindering voor non-clearing OTC-derivaten

LONDEN–(BUSINESS WIRE)– SmartStream, specialist in Transaction Lifecycle Management (TLM), heeft vandaag de lancering van zijn  TLM Collateral Management adaptor aangekondigd. Dit nieuwe product biedt een volledige cyclus van handelsberichten voor non-clearing OTC-derivaten. SmartStream was in staat de adaptor snel te leveren, dankzij het gebruik van technologieën die al in de TLM-systemen van het bedrijf zijn verwerkt.

De International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) en het Basel Comittee hebben een nieuwe standaard voor risicovermindering bij non-clearing OTC-derivaten aangenomen. Firma’s die in OTC-derivaten die niet zijn gestandaardiseerd bevinden zich in een gelijkaardige positie ten aanzien van derivaten met clearing. Zij hebben nu de verplichting zowel de aanvankelijke marge als variabele marges bekend te maken tijdens hun handel in derivaten. Daarom willen handelsbureaus graag weten welke activa bewaard moeten worden als onderpand en welke activa beschikbaar zijn voor handel.

SmartStream Helps with Risk Mitigation for Non-Clearing OTC Derivatives

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– SmartStream, the financial Transaction Lifecycle Management (TLM) specialist, today announced the launch of TLM Collateral Management adaptor to provide a full lifecycle of trading messages for the non-clearing OTC derivatives market. SmartStream were able to rapidly deliver the adaptor using technologies already in production with SmartStream’s TLM solutions.

The International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) and the Basel Committee have developed risk mitigation standards for the non-clearing OTC derivatives market. Firms dealing in non-standardised OTC derivatives will be in a similar position to cleared derivatives and will be obliged to post both initial margin and variation margins when trading. Therefore trading desks, along with collateral managers, are keen to understand which assets should be preserved for use as collateral and which, potentially, are available for trading.

Darryl Twiggs, Head of Product Management, SmartStream states: “Volumes in non-clearing OTC are predicted to rise by a factor of ten in 2016 following the implementation of new IOSCO regulations for intra-day margin call calculations. The heads of collateral operations have been requesting a solution; and currently we are the only vendor to provide the full lifecycle from initial trade activity through to settlement. I am delighted that we have been able to use our TLM technologies to deliver the adaptor quickly. This brings collateral management closer to our other solutions in portfolio and margin settlement reconciliations and intra-day funding liquidity management. The challenges further increase when firms are engaged in derivatives activity through a variety of legal entities in different national jurisdictions; we are speaking to clients who are seeking to mitigate risk in derivatives for cross border transactions.”

TLM Collateral Management Adaptor integrates SmartStream’s TLM Collateral Management with Arcadiasoft’s Margin Sphere clearing services. Uniquely, SmartStream are providing full coverage of the supported lifecycle messages and events supported under STP, negating the need for ad hoc manual activities at other terminals. The adaptor is delivered as part of SmartStream’s latest release of TLM Collateral Management v5.2.10.

The IOSCO standards promote risk mitigation techniques to engage in effective management of counterparty credit risk and timely resolution of disputes. The solution enables inflight identification of disputes and aids their resolution in real-time. This saves time, money, and plays a big part in managing non-clearing OTC cross boarder risk.
