COLLINE is a web-based solution that supports all of your regulatory and strategic collateral management needs anywhere your business operates, across all time zones. The solution enables firms to move away from managing collateral in business silos. COLLINE supports multiple asset classes on a single platform thus permitting efficient collateral management, inventory monitoring and proactive management of liquidity and capital charge constraints.
At the heart of the system is a powerful, configurable enterprise inventory manager that interfaces with your existing systems. With this holistic understanding of the underlying assets, the system is then able to:
Automatically calculate exposure and balance collateral needs
Manage end-to-end margin call workflows
Reconcile margin call disputes
Calculate interest and produce fully configurable client statements
Provide consolidated information in user-defined dashboards
Support an array of sophisticated risk and trade analytics
Lombard Risk recently launched AgileCOLLATERAL, a cloud-based collateral management system which offers the functionality of our market-leading COLLINE solution in a modular, light touch delivery format.
AgileCOLLATERAL is targeted at asset managers, buy-side brokers, pension funds, corporates and investment firms which need the agility to "turn-on" a collateral-in-a-box solution that is hosted in the cloud and eliminates the need for onsite installation and infrastructure costs. The solution is intuitive-reducing the need for training; modular-adding asset classes as needed, scaling up over time to handle more complexity and volume; and implemented in layers-to control costs to match business needs.
