“No-one thinks of collateral optimisation as the same thing.” Moderator Amy Caruso of derivatives association ISDA set the tone for a Copenhagen panel reflecting both the buy- and sell-side realities.

As PostTrade 360° observes repeatedly, the handling and optimised allocation of collateral is getting increasing attention. The emerging “UMR” requirements for collateral posting upon non-centrally-cleared trades is one of the drivers.

The PostTrade 360° Copenhagen conference saw a discussion panel representing a range of perspectives.


The panel was made up of …
Tobias Bergholdt, Head of Derivatives and Collateral, Nykredit Portefølje Administration,
Jesper Stahl Nielsen, Head of Collateral Management, Saxo Bank, and
Nick Kurzel
, Buy-Side Strategy and Product Management, BNY Mellon.

The talk was led by Amy Caruso, Head of Collateral Initiatives, International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA).
