Collateral management has come to the fore as an important method of mitigating counterparty credit risk in the aftermath of the financial crisis and the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers in 2008.
4sight Xpose provides an enterprise-wide collateral management and collateral optimisation solution that gives you control over your collateral processes.
It offers full front to back office collateral management for securities lending, repo, bilateral OTC derivatives, exchange-traded derivatives and centrally cleared derivatives products in a single integrated solution.
The system provides the tools you need to gain a clear picture of your firm's exposures, mitigate risk more effectively and optimise your collateral use across multiple products.
Xpose is used by some of the world's largest financial institutions as a standalone collateral management system or as an integrated element of the 4sight Securities Finance product suite. It also meets the needs of smaller financial firms looking for a flexible and easy to install collateral management solution.
Xpose allows you to view exposure in real time across business lines, giving you a centralised view of your collateral holdings. Xpose provides full front to back office processing from inventory management, margin control and optimisation, through to trade lifecycle workflow, dispute tracking and settlement.
The system also offers tools to automate manual processes, mitigate risk more effectively and respond more easily to regulatory change, while making the optimum use of your firm's balance sheet and retaining vital liquidity.
Xpose supports front to back office support for the collateral
process across the following functional areas:
Inventory Manager: Displays security and cash positions across your profit centre hierarchy. You can select any level in the hierarchy and the monitor will display the positions for that level. The Inventory Manager displays the settled position for each security and forecasts future positions.
