Active Margin Management For Asset Managers

Under new regulations, derivatives now require daily margin, impacting the liquidity position of the firm.

Opengamma enables firms to find the balance between efficient margin funding and guaranteed liquidity, by helping collateral managers, operations and PMs manage margin proactively:

Liquidity Management – ‘how much cash do I need to meet margin requirements?’

Capacity Management – ‘Do I have available capacity to be able to trade?’

Best Execution – ‘What is the most cost effective place to trade?’

Our Modules

Forecast

Market volatility can create drastic increases in margin - forecasting margin requirements across IM and VM requires replication of exchange models. OpenGamma forecasts both short- and long-term margin requirements, and allows you to back-test our cash buffer recommendations against actual margin calls to increase your capital efficiency.

Rebalance

A sub-optimal allocation of derivatives portfolios across clearing brokers and CCPs causes margin inefficiencies. These result in unnecessarily high financing costs. Our dynamic rebalancing engine creates actionable risk and position transfers that find a more efficient way to take the same market position with lower use of capital.

Validate

Over posting margin impacts liquidity, increases credit risk and leads to additional costs (fees and funding). OpenGamma connects directly to Clearing Brokers to receive daily statements and performs position and IM / VM reconciliation to validate the margin you post, reducing operational overheads and risks of errors.
