IHS Markit has announced the launch of Collateral Manager, an end-to-end solution for calculating margin, settling margin calls and managing margin disputes. New regulation requires the mandatory exchange of variation and initial margin for cleared and uncleared OTC derivatives transactions. In response, financial institutions seeking operational excellence require new tools with which to automate margin activity and manage legal and liquidity risk. Collateral Manager’s intuitive, configurable dashboards and real-time reporting help users automate processing of margin calls, manage exceptions and provide transparency for audit and risk purposes. The complete solution provided by Collateral Manager is made possible by sourcing key data, including terms contained in CSAs, trade data, derivatives valuations and pricing for multiple types of eligible collateral, from other IHS Markit services.
