Omgeo expands ProtoColl | Regulatory Compliance
Post-trade vendor specialist Omgeo has announced the expansion of ProtoColl, its collateral and margin management product, to cater for regulatory measures. Provisions in both the US Dodd-Frank Act, and the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) have introduced central clearing and new eligibility criteria for collateral. ProtoColl allows for asset managers to monitor their margin and collateral requirements across the entire trading landscape, and an automated collateral-selection function which grades the available assets and suggests which to use for specific trades. Other added functionality includes recognition for the Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) and its precursor, the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission Interim Compliant Identifier (CICI).
