Pirum’s Collateral Management Service offers a single solution covering the calculation, agreement, and submission of daily triparty required values (RQVs) to triparty agents across all counterparties.

Daily RQVs for securities lending portfolios are calculated by Pirum using a client’s own prices, positions and rules. This service improves the intraday visibility of proposed RQVs, facilitating much simpler and more timely dispute resolution amongst market participants. It also provides a single unified process for operations teams to use when agreeing and communicating RQVs. Pirum receives the latest RQVs from tri-party agents for inclusion in the RQV summary screen. Tri-party agents’ collateral allocation reports facilitate the display of the latest collateralised values and to provide a collateral position reconciliation against the participants own records.
