2019 UMR Impact Analysis Research Report
10th September 2019 Maxime Jeanniard

This research report summarises the findings from OpenGamma’s ‘Uncleared Margin Rules (UMR) impact analysis’ that we performed on behalf of 15 clients over the last 6 months.

The results are anonymised and aggregated by firm type, but help to quantify the margin impact of SIMM on the industry.

The report also outlines the steps firms can take to minimise the impact of SIMM, such as voluntary clearing and other optimisation approaches.
