BNY Mellon - Rule Financial Paper Highlights Pressing Need For Institutional Investors To Explore Alternative Sources Of Collateral

Nadine Chakar, executive vice-president for Global Collateral Services at BNY Mellon, said: "There is an opportunity here for those institutional investors that are natural holders of CCP-eligible collateral, and these assets will be subject to intense demand from banks and other institutional investors to cover margin. The ability to lend such assets, subject of course to adequate risk controls, could therefore be a means of offsetting some of the costs of compliance with the new rules as well as augmenting depressed yields."

Jonathan Philp, specialist in OTC clearing & collateral management at Rule Financial, said: "One impact from a portfolio management perspective is the increase in collateral that must be provided to support OTC derivatives activity, whether cleared or not. The danger is that the perceived benefits of central clearing are overwhelmed by the unintended consequence of the costs of compliance being passed through to the policy holder and pension scheme member, for example, whether in the form of constrained, sub-optimal portfolio decisions or the direct costs of adapting to the new market structure."
