Collateral optimisation

Collateral Management has grown in importance.  Once viewed as a support function, it has been forced into the limelight by several high-profile investment bank failures. All banks are more aware of the risks they face and tighter regulations require all to demonstrate control of their own, and their clients' assets.

One of the challenges of collateral management is obtaining a consolidated view of positions across the bank. This can be a major challenge in a legacy systems environment where data exists in silos. For many banks, collateral management is manually intensive, time-consuming and expensive. It is also prone to errors and is a source of risk.
