Third-party account control
Looking to settle and segregate your assets on a bilateral basis as margin for non-centrally cleared derivatives transactions?
We can hold collateral in a segregated account as a neutral third-party pledge holder. This means assets cannot be used for any other purposes by the pledgee and can only leave the account by returning to the pledgor.
Settlement takes place in a Securities Settlement System using standard SWIFT settlement messages and standard settlement reporting. The collateral is securely ring-fenced in-line with regulatory requirements and is serviced by a neutral party (not a custodian acting on behalf of a counterparty).
