This combination of sophisticated treasury technology and expertise in treasury and accounting enables us to support clients through the entire treasury and risk management process.
We help our clients solve problems in a number of areas:
Due to more stringent derivatives and banking regulations, the use of derivatives has become more complex and often includes higher associated charges. This is particularly material when residential, property, utility and other corporate clients enter into long dated derivatives transactions they have to pay high charges. Often the majority of these charges relate to credit risk and the related provisions that banks needs to hold over the life of the transactions. The use of collateral agreements which are called Credit Support Annexes can be used to mitigate counterparty risk and associated credit charges. Depending on derivative portfolio movements, an entity may have to post collateral, cash or assets, against the mark to market of that portfolio.
Centrus can provide collateral management services as an extension of the valuation and reporting services through the use of treasury technology. We can support with calculation of margin calls taking into account:
- Portfolio market to market using consistent discount methodology to bank counterparty
- Credit support annex terms:
- Minimum transfer amount
- Margin call frequency
- Type of collateral
Our approach is to use the TITAN™ collateral management module and customize accordingly to client requirements.
