The Economics of Collateral and Making a Profit - Free Webinar


The Economics of Collateral and Making a Profit

Free Webinar

28th June 2016: 3pm BST (11am ET)

Join FIS and guests for an insight into the right way to turn your collateral management activity into a profit centre rather than a cost.  Our panel will discuss the latest research into the effects of mandatory clearing and bilateral margining on your collateral management activity. 

  • Is cash still king? 80%+ of margin calls are met with cash but in this low interest rate environment, is this still appropriate?
  • What are the platform and infrastructure choices to meet the March 2017 non-cleared OTC collateral regulations?
  • How can funds utilise their assets to cover margin calls without reducing their return on investment?
  • When will the shortfall of assets kick in and what should you do?
  • What you really need from an optimisation approach
  • What new innovations are happening in collateral management?
