Collateral Management for Securities Lending
Clearstream’s triparty securities lending services are part of our comprehensive offering for collateral management. Acting as neutral agent, Clearstream offers modular triparty loan and collateral management services supporting our customers to manage risks and liquidity more efficiently.
Securities lending can place great challenges on systems and operations for both lenders and borrowers. Our triparty services manage the post-trade complexities for securities lending through a sophisticated collateral engine with advanced functionalities and the use of extensive data fields. As such, customers save time and resources as operational tasks are delegated to our team of experts while having transparency on their activities and access to automated reporting and connectivity tools
Collateralising securities lending
Clearstream offers proven triparty collateral management features complemented by optional loan book valuation and settlement.
As market leader in the banking, funding and financing space, Clearstream manages collateral to cover all types of exposures in real-time, across currencies, asset classes and time zones while offering cash re-investment and collateral transformation services. This helps our customers to overcome fragmentation and manage their collateral from a single pool across repo, securities lending, derivatives and central bank activities amongst others.
Optimised asset allocation
Clearstream ensures the optimal (re-)use of collateral (cash, bonds, equities and funds) across products, counterparties and locations.
In addition, Clearstream also arranges loans for our customers through Automated Securities Lending (ASL) to prevent settlement failures and actively managed strategic securities lending. ASLplus complements this service with Clearstream as principal and single borrower keeping customer risk minimal and increasing the lender’s portfolio yield.
