Collateral Management

Clearstream's sophisticated collateral management system allows a high degree of flexibility, enabling a broad range of participants to implement individual service requirements.

Clearstream is constantly striving to extend its collateral management system's reach through partnerships with electronic trading platforms, central counterparties (CCPs), central securities depositories (CSDs) and agent banks, so that clients can cover all their exposures from Clearstream.

Clearstream's collateral management system operates in real-time and can manage collateral across various currencies, asset classes and time zones. Outsourcing collateral management to Clearstream as a neutral agent enables clients to focus on their core business, while benefiting from asset optimisation and full regulatory compliance.
