Two Initial Margin phases for the price of one?
BCBS/IOSCO have recommended the introduction of a new Initial Margin phase within their July-19 statement, meaning we’d see Phase 5 in Sept-20 ($/€50bn AANA) and Phase 6 in Sept-21 ($/€8bn AANA).
There's plenty to consider here. Check out our post for five key takeaways.
It's all about the thresholds....
Chris was invited onto a progressive Initial Margin webinar hosted by Cassini, with all eyes on the 50mm exchange threshold for Phase 4 and 5 firms.
Topics included BCBS/IOSCO's recent guidance, threshold fundamentals, how firms can pro-actively understand their IM delivery scope, monitoring thresholds and options to reduce threshold breach risk. Check out the video here.
Based on BCBS/IOSCO’s March-19 announcement, Phase 4 and 5 Initial Margin firms will be focused on which of their relationships will breach threshold and by when.
With that in mind, Margin Tonic are pleased to be able to help in-scope firms with the introduction of our new Threshold Breach Assessment service.
Margin Tonic provides a flexible set of end-to-end industry-leading Initial Margin services. Our specialists have defined and delivered the full set of IM changes at multiple firms across multiple phases.
