Trends, Risks and Opportunities in Collateral Management: A Collateral Management White Paper
Collateral is viewed as a solution to and a trigger of massive financial losses that occurred as a result of the financial crisis of 2008. In response, policymakers around the world have enacted new rules and legislation, including the Dodd-Frank Act (DFA) in the United States, European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and Basel III regulations, to increase market stability and resiliency, enhance transparency and reduce risk. As a result, these rapid changes in the financial markets are impacting the management, mobilization and transformation of collateral.
In “Trends, Risks and Opportunities in Collateral Management,” The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) provides an overview of collateral and highlights key drivers for change. The paper also discusses solutions and opportunities to respond to regulatory and industry challenges.
