The conversation on the new securities lending CCP model is changing – its not so much in the future tense anymore but is moving to the present. Our panel at IMN’s Beneficial Owner’s Conference in London yesterday cemented that fact. But how soon is too soon to actually expect securities lending CCPs, that allow beneficial owners to participate directly, to be regular fixtures in the market?
The BIS recently published a piece on collateral management. It is interesting to understand where they see both the opportunities and risks. We take a look at “Developments in collateral management services”, Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures, September 2014.
We note seven events on securities finance coming up in Europe, starting with IMN’s Beneficial Owner event and ending with Collateral World, including two events of our own. This article offers a summary of where we will be, where we won’t be, and what attendees can expect. Then we wrap up the month by heading to SIBOS in Boston.
