GlobalCollateral’s mission is to deliver increased efficiency and reduced costs within the highly-fragmented and complex collateral management industry. By drawing on the combined resources and expertise of two of the largest post-trade infrastructure providers in the world, GlobalCollateral offers a truly global solution for efficiently allocating and mobilizing capital globally.
Jo Van de Velde, Executive Director of DTCC-Euroclear Global Collateral Ltd., commented: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Michael for everything he has contributed to GlobalCollateral since its inception three years ago. Michael has displayed exceptional leadership and an unquestionable commitment to the joint venture’s success. I am confident GlobalCollateral, under Olivier’s stewardship, will take the next step in its journey to deliver transformational market utilities for margin and collateral processing."
Mark Jennis, Executive Chairman of DTCC-Euroclear Global Collateral Ltd., added: “We extend our welcome to Olivier and Murray. Both bring a wealth of collateral management knowledge and expertise to the JV, and we look forward to working with them in the coming months and years as we transform the collateral and margin management infrastructure across the industry.”
Initially launched in 2014, GlobalCollateral is working to revolutionize the collateral and margin management process, as regulatory mandates require firms to post additional margin across transactions to reduce counterparty and systemic risk.
