A comprehensive solution for derivatives initial margin instruction, exposure and collateral 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) lifecycle processing and collateral management challenges. IMConnect manages that complexity by providing services to support exposure management, margin instruction, eligibility oversight and control as well as collateral management and optimisation.
It offers you two-way, real-time connectivity with all tri-party agents and other collateral venues to instruct the pledge and receipt of initial margin.
