More collateral products to be cleared in Asia but scope and timeline remains unclear

Karim Chabane, Director of Collateral Management Regional Securities Finance for Citi’s Asia Pacific explains that the current global economic landscape, post credit crisis, is leading to a new regulatory environment focusing on reducing exposures from OTC trading activity, and in Asia Pacific, there is confirmation of a trend towards collateralization going across lending as well as capital markets products.

Chabane also explains that a new regulatory framework is taking shape primarily under US and European initiatives, however some practical implications remain uncertain and the future outlook is difficult to predict.

“It is no doubt more products will be cleared but the actual scope and timeline has remained unclear. In particular in Asia, we are likely to end up with multiple national initiatives, each with their own characteristics and little or no interoperability. Mandatory clearing for certain products and according to different rules depending on the jurisdictions will push for bifurcation of flows. This will increase the importance of collateral management to meet margin requirements of CCP as well as to mitigate counterparty risk exposures bilaterally. This increase in collateral management will push up the demand for adequate assets, potentially leading to liquidity squeeze and its increased capital costs implications. In this context, operational efficiency will be key and considering the use of an outsourcing specialized provider can help getting the right risk management tools and address complexity,” he said.
