BNY Mellon Launches The Collateral Universe(SM)

Stocks in this article: BK

NEW YORK and LONDON, Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, has announced the launch of the Collateral Universe(SM), the company's suite of second generation collateral management capabilities and solutions, designed to help buy-side clients manage the impact of regulatory change on their investment processes.

The BNY Mellon Collateral Universe combines the company's comprehensive range of collateral management and related solutions with the benefits provided by its central securities depositary - BNY Mellon CSD - and its new Collateral Aggregator.

"For market participants, the current and future regulatory reforms pertaining to derivatives and capital are expected to contribute to collateral and liquidity shortfalls, as well as increased funding costs and operational complexity. These challenges have prompted the buy-side to explore new ideas, tools and partners," said Kurt Woetzel, chief executive officer of BNY Mellon's Global Collateral Services business.

Nadine Chakar, head of product development & strategy, Global Collateral Services at BNY Mellon added: "We have transformed our business model, investing in new capabilities specifically to address the new challenges facing market participants. Our Universe provides the next generation of collateral solutions and demonstrates BNY Mellon's leadership and innovation."

BNY Mellon's Collateral Universe encompasses collateral management solutions including segregation, optimization, aggregation, securities financing, liquidity management, consulting, derivatives lifecycle management and reporting.

Established to help clients address new regulations including Basel III, EMIR, AIFMD and MiFID as well as the advent of T2S, BNY Mellon's Brussels-based CSD has received a Belgian Royal Decree granting it Securities Settlement System (SSS) status. As an SSS, BNY Mellon CSD is formally recognized to be an appropriate system under EMIR Article 47.3 for the holding of financial instruments as margins or as default fund contributions for CCPs, an important component in assisting clients to reduce their risk in line with the EU Settlement Finality Directive.

In May, the CSD signed a Framework Agreement with the Eurosystem to allow it to outsource settlement to the T2S settlement platform. As a direct T2S participant, the CSD will have the opportunity to leverage the settlement system's auto collateralization program for central bank money and its collateral pooling facilities, among other capabilities, to help speed up the velocity of collateral within global markets.
