Falco added: "As the introduction of Basel III's liquidity coverage ratio requirements in 2015 draws closer, the need to source high quality assets to be used as collateral is beginning to become critical for affected firms. To this end, highly rated Asian assets such as Japanese government bonds (JGBs) and Singapore government securities provide an elegant solution to the expected shortfall of acceptable collateral in the US and Europe. The challenge is having the infrastructure to 'unlock' these assets, which is where BNY Mellon can help."
