21 Jun 2019 — Bill Hodgson

IM & SIMM should now be part of front office decision making, and long-term portfolio management.  Our panel intends to discuss the extent to which initial margin should be part of all trading and portfolio decisions.  For UMR firms who are above the average notional threshold but potentially beneath the 50mm IM threshold on a relationship, can scale down their compliance plans.

The new Variation Margin regulations impact all financial entities as well as systemically important non-financial entities that deal in uncleared OTC trades. This means that from March onwards, all new trades will need to be captured under a collateral agreement and margined daily with collateral posted to cover the MTM movements. Whilst this may sound simple in principle to achieve, entering into a collateral agreement is no simple task.
