IM Instruct
A single, comprehensive connection for initial margin instruction and management  

With the rollout of phases five and six of Basel III’s uncleared margin rules (UMR) framework, firms face a wave of initial margin (IM) call processing. IM Instruct manages that complexity, and provides eligibility oversight and control.


It offers you two-way, real-time connectivity with all tri-party agents to instruct the pledge and receipt of IM. You can achieve a single, exception-based process using standardised procedures to mitigate risk, and limit the resource impact from UMR. 

You can benefit from:

  • full end-to-end automation of IM receipts and pledges,
  • improved control and oversight through a single, real-time user interface,
  • efficiently match, reconcile and instruct RQVs or exposure to triparty and other collateral venues .


Our single solution covers everything

Key features include:

  • A true exception-based processing platform with a single operating model.
  • The management of every triparty venue and other collateral venues as well as your counterparties via a consolidated user interface.
  • Total collateral process coverage for pledgors and pledgees, with full exception handling.
  • Real-time monitoring of all venues and collateral coverage, alerts of allegements, and reporting.


IM Instruct is also offered on a bundled basis as part of our IMConnect Service,  where it is offered alongside with our award winning CollateralConnect Service which supports cross product, enterprise-side collateral management and optimisation.
