This report provides investors and users with a framework for understanding the services offered and investment opportunities in collateral management. Collateral management is often discussed in today’s financial markets, and there are still expectations of large new amounts of collateral necessary for investors to post on central counterparties (CCPs) and for non- cleared, bilateral transactions. As firms prepare for this new reality, a wave of infrastructure has emerged to support their needs. Collateral service providers include banks, technology providers and market infrastructures including central securities depositories (CSDs).

This report presents the different players in the collateral management space, the services they provide and how each generates revenues. We offer a market sizing for the collateral management universe by product and who manages collateral on a geographic basis. For users including operations and technology teams, the document summarizes various options for accessing technology, operations and services. For asset managers and private equity firms looking at collateral management as an investment opportunity, the report presents possible entry points into the market.

This report is included in the Finadium for Investors series, providing briefings and analysis to the asset owner and asset manager community.

This report is 20 pages with 9 exhibits.
