Buyside collateral management paper highlighted by Securities Lending Times


The Securities Lending Times has cited recent research jointly undertaken by Rule Financial (Part of the GFT Group) and 4sight which shows that many financial firms are still to start preparations for collateral management of centrally cleared derivatives. The research was recently published in a paper entitled 'Buyside collateral management: challenges and opportunities' after both Rule Financial and 4sight had teamed up in May this year to host an insightful webinar looking at the challenges and opportunities presented by the impending collateral reporting deadline this August.

The results of the survey found that only four percent of respondents had completed preparations with forty-six percent in the process of implementing their target operating model.

Following the high levels of interest in the May webinar, the presenters David Field (Specialist in Clearing and Collateral Management) and Paul Wilson of 4sight, along with Martin Seagroatt of 4sight, co-authored the point-of-view document which elaborated on some of the key points discussed.
