COLLATERAL MANAGEMENT PARADIGM
15TH - 16TH NOVEMBER 2018
The interaction of numerous regulatory frameworks such as the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), the Uncleared Margin Rules,
Basel III (Capital Requirements Regulation (CRR) and Capital Requirements Directive (CRD IV), and the Securities Financing Transaction Regulation (SFTR) have ushered in a regulatory storm that has caused havoc within the banking and financial services industries. In order to weather the regulatory storm, banking and nancial services firms must re-evaluate their collateral management operations and strategies. The optimisation, allocation and transmission of collateral are now mandatory strategic considerations that firms must implement in order to achieve efficiency collateral management and operational efficiency.
At a minimum this requires consideration of issues such as ensuring effective pre-trade optimisation controls, ensuring transparency of collateral requirements and collateral inventory, and netting of collateral exposures. Firms need to ensure that they are moving towards streamlined Straight Through Processing (STP) by reviewing segregation of collateral procedures, monitoring open collateral positions and re-hypothecated positions, modelling future collateral requirements, effectively reporting collateral demands, and ensuring robust netting, valuation, and pricing procedures. This one and-a-half day training event seeks to comprehensively guide attendees through all the latest regulatory compliance, operational, strategic, and technological issues affecting collateral management functions throughout the European Union (EU).
•Highly comprehensive training course materials (training manual, training materials, PowerPoint presentations, definitions booklet).
•Highly interactive sessions with the training course expert which can reflect the attendee’s business perspectives.
•Pre-course questionnaire to identify the attendee’s key course objectives.
•Post-course follow up to ensure all key course objectives have been met.
•Unique insights into collateral management strategies and technologies.
