Our open Collateral Highway platform gives you access to one of the largest global collateral pools so you can collateralise, optimise and mobilise your assets by:

  • maximising your existing agent bank relationships (Open Inventory Sourcing)
  • controlling assets in either the CDB Bank or DTCC systems (IMS?)
  • using pre-defined baskets of securities in the triparty repo market (€GCPlus)
  • accessing the low risk, centrally-cleared Eurosystem environment
  • automating collateral matching, selection, substitution and margin calls
  • providing mark-to-market collateral valuations and bespoke reporting
