TriOptima launches triCalculate IM Analytics tool for initial margin compliance

RELATED TOPICS​

TriOptima, an infrastructure service that lowers costs and mitigates risk in OTC derivatives markets, has launched triCalculate IM Analytics, which provides crucial insight into the options for initial margin (IM) calculation, helps with the identification and prioritisation of in-scope counterparties and aids trading decisions to reduce future IM costs.

The service supports organisations that are in-scope for Phases 4 and 5 of the initial margin requirements, which come into effect in 2019/20. These two phases are anticipated to pull in thousands of regional banks and buy side participants with portfolios above EUR750 billion and EUR8 billion in notional value respectively. Those coming into scope are faced with a variety of operational challenges around the calculation and exchange of IM.
 
The triCalculate IM Analytics service supports the Standard Initial Margin Model (SIMM) versus schedule decision-making process and is the latest tool in a series of initial margin services offered by TriOptima. TriOptima’s triCalculate IM Analytics, triResolve and triResolve Margin services and AcadiaSoft’s Initial Margin Exposure Manager work together to calculate IM inputs, manage margin calls and resolve disputes for in-scope firms.
 
“With less than a year to go until the next IM tranche, regulators will expect to see tried and tested IM calculation models supported by data well in advance of the September deadline. However, many firms are currently unaware if they will be affected, let alone what they need to do to meet the demands. triCalculate IM Analytics helps clients achieve compliance, overcome challenges and evolve with the market,” says Thomas Griffiths (pictured), Co-CEO, triCalculate.
