Minimizing Margin and Streamlining Collateral Management for Listed and Cleared Derivatives
Join Charles River's Explore & Learn webinar series. Discover new ways to leverage the Charles River Investment Management Solution as our product experts discuss and demonstrate the latest product capabilities.
Charles River’s product specialists continue our Explore & Learn webinar series with a closer look at the number of regulations seeking to reduce systemic risk associated with derivatives. Collectively, these measures have significantly increased collateral and margin requirements for both cleared and listed derivatives, placing new challenges on the buy-side front and middle office. This webinar will explore Charles River collateral management workflows to help firms minimize costs, gain operational efficiencies, and increase visibility into pledged and available collateral.
Webinar topics include:
- Optimizing initial margin and lifetime costs
- Monitoring FCM margin limits
- Ensuring the front and middle office share a common view of collateral needs
- Eliminating spreadsheets from collateral workflows
The webinar is a 35 minute presentation and discussion followed by Q&A.
