Collateral management services

Accenture provides collateral management solutions for capital markets firms to help transform their collateral management architecture.

Overview

Effective collateral management starts with design, negotiation and set-up of new collateral legal agreements (CSAs), and continues with operations to collect and return cash and/or securities collateral, recall and substitute collateral, mark collateral to market, asset-service collateral and meet the demands to finance new types of products.

Accenture helps clients transform their collateral management architecture to take advantage of operational shifts by leveraging our services in:

  • Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) – including asset servicing, research and analytics

  • Management Consulting – providing maturity and capability assessments, operating model and business process analysis and business requirements documentation

  • Technology Consulting – bringing together our capabilities in systems integration, technology consulting, alliances, application outsourcing and infrastructure outsourcing

As a result, the costs of internal fragmentation in the global collateral management market are estimated to be in the range of 4 billion Euros annually. External costs and potential savings are more difficult to estimate given that they are dependent upon future regulation, but our survey suggested that cost savings could well be considerable.

Accenture has assisted a large number of clients with a broad spectrum of collateral management projects over the past 15 years. Details are available upon request.
