Sybase’s Collateral Manager

In today’s rapidly changing liquidity and risk management environment, banks are demanding methods to improve their management of the liquid assets available for use within the intraday and short term liquidity management process. This requires enterprise wide information to support liquidity needs during routine daily operations and more importantly, crisis situations. Organizations are seeking ways to provide Liquidity and Risk Managers with an enterprise wide, intraday view of their collateral positions in liquid assets by asset type, currency, location and business entity.


Sybase’s Collateral Manager, an integral module of Sybase’s Liquidity Management Suite (LMS), provides information on a 24 X 7 basis to monitor and manage near cash assets that can be used for Real-Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) or other settlement mechanisms, or as part of the bank’s contingent funding plan and liquidity management. As part of this function, it also records financial assets that can be used to generate solvent positions in extreme circumstances. Sybase’s Collateral Manager is able to record and track any type of asset (for example, eligible commercial loans) that can be used to provide short term liquidity from the market, at central banks or similar liquidity providing institutions. Collateral Manager does not replace existing trading and safekeeping systems, but integrates into the existing processing infrastructure to provide a real-time, enterprise wide view of the asset positions available to support the institutions liquidity requirements.

Sybase’s Collateral Manager capabilities include:

  • Generate positions from movements in real-time
  • Record the status of collateral items and available assets - includes the tracking of booking (trade date), confirmation and settlement events in accordance with the rules configured in the system
  • Match expected receipts against depository notification that securities are received
  • Accommodate automatic feeds and manual captures and updates
  • Update the cash value of assets pledged and available assets
  • Update the Assets Pledged balance for a currency and channel in the Liquidity Management Suite when the actual pledged balance changes in the Collateral Manager
  • Display all available collateral for a given channel, together with its status and depository location
  • Request actions, such as pledging or repo-ing assets, to provide liquidity to meet the bank’s processing needs
  • Provide flexible inquiries on all positions and collateral transactions to support different views based upon criteria, including: branch, business unit, portfolio, collateral type, depository, credit quality, currency and clearing account, together with combinations of these criteria
  • Alert appropriate staff and/or systems of exception conditions, such as a clearing account balance
    reaching a threshold, or an expected collateral pledging event passing its expected time
  • Provide a set of tools to allow user definition of the rules and referential data used in the tracking
    and monitoring of collateral transactions and generation of resulting positions
  • Support a global environment: multi-entity, multi-time zone and multi-currency
  • Provide an historical database of collateral activity and security balances

Provide data for trend analysis, management information and regulatory liquidity risk reporting
