Margins, collateral, liquidity – It’s anything but marginal

Market turmoil reminds everyone that margin optimization, margin methodologies, counterparty risk, and funding are essential elements in the total risk/reward profile of a portfolio.

Replay our webcast from 27 May where we dive into the effects of extreme market volatility from a back and mid-office perspective. The session is moderated by Phil Simons from Eurex, with contributions from industry experts.

Panel experts cover the following points during the webcast:

  • How resilient are margin methodologies during periods of extreme volatility?
  • Margin management considerations - from an operational and funding perspective
  • Margin optimization opportunities: Do they exist? 
  • How to ensure the risk-reward profile of a securities lending programme is aligned with current market conditions?
  • Performance & development outlook of the repo market in light of the COVID-19 crisis
