Manage your collateral and liquidity effectively

At Northern Trust we understand that the intersection of global derivatives and capital-related regulations such as the European Market Infrastructure Regulation are expected to increase the need for liquidity and over the longer term create a collateral squeeze. We will work with you to help you more effectively monitor and manage your liquidity and collateral all within a transparent framework that will allow you to optimise your assets use while reducing counterparty and settlement risk.

We provide broad services across the collateral lifecycle, helping you with inventory management, collateral management, collateral access, liquidity access, reporting and monitoring.

  • Focus on asset safety with assets held within transparent account structures
  • Extensive coverage of assets, held in custody with Northern Trust and outside of Northern Trust, providing a holistic view of your inventory, the foundation to managing collateral efficiently
  • Extensive market infrastructure connectivity
