AcadiaSoft launches collateral management offering

AcadiaSoft has launched a new platform to provide end-to-end collateral management for all buy-side firms.

The company, which provides margin automation solutions for counterparties engaged in collateral management, has launched CollateralManager via the AcadiaSoft Hub.

Its new web-based platform covers all agreement types – OTC Bilateral, OTCCleared, Exchange Traded Derivatives, Repo, MSFTA, Securities Lending and Borrowing and lends itself to asset managers, hedge funds and corporates who have regulatory and operational requirements to automate their internal collateral management process

CollateralManager enables firms to customise dashboards with inventory management, collateral optimisation and margin call communication capabilities. The inventory management capability tracks available collateral from allocation to agreed obligations. The service also provides position management, which will set collateral values based on eligibility terms and the latest pricing data. Participating firms will be able to access all the banks currently engaged on the AcadiaSoft Hub.

“With every global bank and nearly all regional dealers now engaged on the Hub, the natural next step for us is to expand AcadiaSoft’s offerings to the buy-side community,” said Chris Walsh, CEO of AcadiaSoft. “By integrating CollateralManager with MarginSphere®, we can provide a one-stop shop for the buy-side’s collateral and messaging needs. Our easy-to-use cloud-based platform will help firms reduce the time and cost previously required to manage collateral and margin calculations.”

Headquartered outside of Boston in Norwell, Massachusetts, AcadiaSoft is  focused on delivering margin automation and standards for counterparties engaged in collateral management.

The company allows market participants to communicate vital information on exposures, commitments and adjustments between counterparties in a complete, verifiable and secure manner.

Last year, it launched AcadiaSoft Expert Services, a suite of consultative offerings designed to support firms as they comply with new regulations. AcadiaSoft’s ISDA SIMMTM Approval Guidance, a service providing firms a streamlined, expert-driven process to help obtain permission from regulators to use the ISDA SIMMTM for Initial Margin (IM) calculations, also launched as the first available offering within Expert Services.
