Sernova Financial

Sernova Financial is a UK based entity founded in 2015 by industry experts, Venkatesh Ramasamy and Richard Thompson, in response to the mounting business complexity surrounding post-trade services.

The clearing market is affected by significant changes including reduced capacity, increased clearing fees and uncertainty of market access.

Sernova Financial is a provider of innovative, turnkey solutions that lower the barriers to entry for end users and regional banks looking to become a clearing member or clearing broker.

Utilising proven technology from market leader Calypso Technologies, Sernova Financial’s service platform recreates the shared infrastructure and service elements of a traditional clearing broker, providing clients with a faster route to market and a lower total cost of ownership than traditionally experienced with in-house or third party solutions.

By providing access to multiple Central Counterparty Clearing Houses (CCPs), Sernova Financial’s cloud based services platform will enable local banks to “self-clear” and where appropriate, allowing them to service franchise clients through domestic and global CCPs. For clients who continue to favour the traditional operating model, Sernova Financial creates a normalised view across clearing brokers to simplify integration, provide support and analytical tools.

DTCC-Euroclear GlobalCollateral Ltd

Collateral processing is becoming significantly more complex due to global financial reform. The need for collateral is expected to grow, yet the enhanced market safety and soundness intended by the new rules (Basel III, Dodd-Frank, EMIR and similar legislation in other jurisdictions) will be lost if global operating infrastructure cannot keep pace.

DTCC-Euroclear GlobalCollateral Ltd. is a scalable, robust and open industry infrastructure that will streamline collateral processing on a global basis. It brings together two of the industry's largest post-trade market infrastructures to develop and streamline margin settlement processes, and to enhance open access to securities collateral irrespective of location, thereby improving the stability and soundness of financial markets. This open architecture global infrastructure will deliver unprecedented operating efficiencies to market participants and improve the stability and soundness of financial markets.

GlobalCollateral Ltd will offer market participants:

Transparency

A single, global view of eligible assets wherever they may be; accurate and timely consolidated reporting of collateral obligations; a consolidated view of collateral flows and obligations to enable regulators to monitor market stability 

Mobility

Allocation of assets to where they are needed most to meet collateral obligations across the business; substitution of collateral to optimally meet obligations; access to a global network of high quality collateral givers and takers

Efficiency

DTCC/Omgeo

DTCC’s collateral management platform, Omgeo ProtoColl offers an end-to-end collateral management solution that allows firms to effectively monitor and manage their collateral operations and reduce counterparty risk. It provides a holistic view into a firm’s exposure while enabling automated straight-through-processing to manage margin and collateral calls across the entire trading operation.

ProtoColl’s interface is continually enhanced to facilitate STP for the collateral management lifecycle, from exposure management, asset optimization, notification and same-day settlement confirmation with a combination of industry partnerships such as AcadiaSoft MarginSphere and TriOptima triResolve. To expand our goal of reducing risk and increasing operational efficiency, ProtoColl recently introduced additional automation by building a new interface to DTCC’s Global Trade Repository (GTR), the world’s largest global repository which supports global regulatory requirements like EMIR and Dodd-Frank.

ProtoColl’s rules-based approach to collateral management enables risk mitigation by allowing firms to build custom algorithms to:

  • Optimize assets for delivery
  • Automatically evaluate delivered collateral for eligibility
  • Route transactions for validation and settlement
  • Highlight high-risk transactions for approval

With Omgeo ProtoColl, firms can fundamentally change the way they manage their collateral and its associated risks, without the need to create costly, manually intensive operating models.  Its rules-based approach is simple – yet powerful – providing clients with a cost-effective, automated approach to risk management.
