Global over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market structure change stemming from the Group of 20 (G-20) agreement in September 2009 has significantly altered the collateral management landscape over the last couple of years. Beginning with the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act in 2013 and the subsequent rollout of similar reforms in Europe and Asia, firms have been forced to re-evaluate their support of derivatives margining activities and the collateral lifecycle overall. The buy-side has been a little slower to respond to regulatory change but all market participants active in the global derivatives markets have witnessed a shift to clearing and an increased prioritization of the margining and collateral management function as a whole.
Produced by Aite Group, this study, examines the current challenges firms face in managing collateral in an environment dominated by legacy technology and siloed workarounds, highlighting areas of particular pain across the enterprise and how firms are tackling these challenges today and planning for tomorrow. It also examines the external viewpoint of common challenges in moving collateral across the globe and manual inefficiencies in collateral messaging.
Derivatives Collateral Management: Entering the Industrial Age? is the second in a series of two papers that examines the recent developments in derivatives collateral management activities and is based on interviews with respondents from 34 firms.
It highlights internal and external developments for firms active in derivatives markets across the globe – and is now available.
