Regulatory reform continues to impact the derivatives market. Changes focused on standardization, increased transparency, collateral management and the reduction of credit risk could require market participants to make potentially large infrastructure investments. In this fast-changing environment, institutional investors like you must identify the swap execution facilities, futures commission merchants and clearinghouses with whom you will work. As a result, you may be considering the benefits offered by an experienced third-party provider.
State Street’s1 end-to-end offering enables straight-through processing and provides an integrated model to meet your derivatives needs. You can rely on our deep experience with settlements, payments, servicing, collateral management and reconciliations to provide solutions that collaboratively meet your needs, with a buy-side focus. Our offering addresses a wide range of derivatives requirements and is available as a full product suite or as individual components.
Clearing. Our services facilitate clearing across multiple products, markets and geographic regions. Leveraging our combined expertise as a custodian and futures commission merchant, we provide you with highly customized services. Not only can we help improve your workflow efficiencies, but by combining clearing and custody we can also help to reduce your administrative burden and exposure to multiple counterparties. With State Street, you can consolidate clearing into a streamlined workflow while benefiting from our high credit rankings .
Servicing. Our global derivatives platform automates processing across the middle and back offices, from trade confirmation and allocations to settlement and reporting, using industry-standard formats that link to central counterparties and industry utilities. Our service can help you to streamline your operations, keep pace with regulatory and industry changes, and reduce your operational risk without costly investments in infrastructure and resources.
Collateral Services. The new margining requirements across both cleared and uncleared transactions are driving the need for strong collateral management capabilities. Counterparty risk must be managed holistically, regardless of where or why collateral is held. Integrated with our OTC derivatives processing and valuation services, our collateral services work with some of the most sophisticated middle-office services available, automating the collateralization process over the life of the transaction — from exposure calculation, profiling and eligibility validation, and daily pricing and substitution to margin call measurement and global exposure reporting.
OTC Derivative Valuations. To help you achieve greater pricing accuracy and clarity, we provide a uniquely independent, transparent service for valuing OTC derivatives. Fully integrated with our industry-leading multi-currency custody and accounting platform, our valuations service can be part of a streamlined, seamless process from automated trade capture to timely inclusion of prices in the net asset value of a fund. We offer comprehensive instrument coverage, industry-standard valuation methodologies, best-practice operational processes and flexibility for market data sources and timing. Our solution can be your trusted source for pricing your OTC derivatives, helping reduce both your reliance on counterparty prices and your risk.
Risk & Analytics Reporting. Our full-service risk measurement and analytics team provides customized solutions for your portfolio management and reporting needs. With coverage across a wide range of asset classes, including exchange-traded and OTC derivatives, we can present you with a comprehensive picture of your position and portfolio exposures through a Web-based interface that lets you analyze and manage your portfolio in real time.
