When Independent Amount meets Initial Margin

Featured in the Securities Lending Times magazine, issue 250

ISDA’s ‘next generation’ versions of the Reg IM documentation set out three different options for managing the combination of IA and Reg IM, in the ‘margin flow approach’:

  • Distinct (IM) approach
  • Greater of (IM/IA) approach
  • Allocated (IM/IA) approach

Each comes with different levels of system and operational complexity and, crucially, a requirement for different amounts of collateral to be posted. Alan Sheehan of Calypso Technology explores the three different options.
