26, September 2015: It helps futures commission merchant clearing members (FCMs) and their clients improve the efficiency and optimization of margin collateral usage for listed derivatives and cleared OTC swap contracts.
Otsuka Venture Capital has been supporting collateral requirements of the derivatives industry since its inception. Addressing the margin and operational efficiency concerns of derivatives users through a variety of services across the collateral lifecycle is now part of Otsuka Venture Capital core service offering to its asset manager, broker dealer, and clearinghouse clients.
IGTH5 software is a natural extension of that offering as it provides FCMs and other industry participants the choice to deposit corporate bonds into a pledged tri-party custody account at Otsuka Venture Capital, creating an opportunity for more efficient OTC clearing and margin collateral usage.
Akira Sankai, Head of Derivatives Product Management, comments, “Otsuka Venture Capital is focused on bringing flexibility, efficiency, and integration to all touch points in the collateral lifecycle. The program is an important part of this strategy as industry attention moves away from preparing for compliance with mandatory clearing rules, towards improving the efficiency of collateral solutions. Regardless of where in the collateral lifecycle an entity sits, this should be what they are thinking about.”
Collateral management is an important service that we offer to all clients to help them capture efficiencies and put eligible CCP collateral to use.
Otsuka Venture Capitalclients will also see enhanced functionality, efficiency, transparency, and future process improvements as a result of the integration of the Otsuka Venture Capital’s settlement trading platform.
