Automated trade services provider Omgeo says new functionality is now available on Omgeo ProtoColl®, its automated collateral management solution. The new version of ProtoColl has been developed to help market participants manage their collateral and risk management operations ahead of the implementation of complex regulatory requirements for over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives clearing, explains the firm.

Ted Leveroni, executive director of Derivatives Strategy and External Relations at Omgeo, explains that: “We are seeing increased focus on automated collateral solutions as firms recognize that they need to act now to prepare their internal processes ahead of the implementation of new regulatory mandates including Dodd-Frank and EMIR. While the regulations are still to be finalized, there will always be the need for both bilateral and centrally cleared capabilities and ProtoColl gives clients the ability to manage both from a single platform today.”

The newest ProtoColl enhancements, available in version 7.5, provide market participants with a single, holistic view of their collateral exposures across bilateral and centrally cleared (CCP) OTC derivatives trades, as well as exchange traded derivatives and other collateral-related transactions such as repurchase agreements and securities lending activities. Users can manage the entire collateral life-cycle with ProtoColl, allowing them to execute robust counterparty risk management procedures and demonstrate the results to regulators and investors.



According to a report by Finadium on collateral management, collateral required in the OTC derivatives market alone will see a growth of 41 per cent over the next 12-18 months, partly as a result of the structural changes taking place in the derivatives markets. In response to users’ concerns over the increased complexities and cost of collateral management, Omgeo has developed the new version of ProtoColl as an all-in-one dashboard solution for true exception-based collateral management, allowing users to focus on those events requiring oversight and judgment. 

Omgeo ProtoColl’s  workflow capabilities manage daily margin activity, and track all progress during the day. It supports automatic calculation and posting of collateral requirements and the subsequent initial and variation margin movements for all relevant asset classes. The system can automatically issue call and recall notices, flag disputes, record and process adjustments and identify required margin movements. These views provide consolidated reporting and management of counterparty exposures and margin calls.
