Clearstream introduces the first ‘Collateral Re-use Service’

13.09.2006
For the first time in the Collateral Management sector, Clearstream is launching a ‘Collateral Re-use Service’. The new service will enable collateral receivers to re-allocate collateral as a guarantee from a triparty counterpart towards another triparty exposure, this time as a collateral giver.

This new functionality will be introduced mid October. It will remove a key limitation to the growth of the European market share of triparty repo in that it will make more collateral available.

There will be no limitations to participation with no restrictions on eligibility profiles, making it the first fully automated cross-quality and cross-product collateral “re-use” functionality offered by a triparty collateral agent.

This functionality will be possible across all Collateral Management Services where Clearstream acts as triparty agent including Triparty Repo, Triparty Securities Lending and any other exposure covered by more generic Triparty Collateral Management agreements. This new functionality is one in a series of product and service improvements to Cleastream’s Triparty Collateral Management suite.

The European repurchase agreement (“repo”) market is one of Europe’s premier financing tool for both banks and broker dealers with a size of over € 5.8 trillion in March 2006 according to the International Capital Markets Association (ICMA).

Clearstream pioneered the development of collateral management services, including triparty repo, in Europe by launching the world’s first such multi-currency service back in 1993 and is now a key part of the infrastructure for the settlement and collateralization of repo and securities lending trades.

Clearstream’s Global Securities Financing services, which include triparty repo, collateral management and securities lending, collectively experienced a rise of 33.6 percent for the first half of 2006 compared to the same period last year.

Im Focus: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
