Euronext Collateral Services

Collateral management is becoming an increasing focus and challenge in the capital markets. The efficient use of assets  is now a top agenda item for many trading participants as high-quality collateral is in greater demand than ever. This is driven by a more prudent counterparty risk management policy resulting from the 2008 financial crisis as well as new regulations governing OTC derivatives and firms' capital requirements. Against this background, financial institutions are reassessing their collateral management processes and many firms are now considering emerging Collateral Management solutions.     

As the leading pan-European marketplace, Euronext’s aim is to serve the real economy by bringing together market participants in venues that are transparent, efficient and reliable.

As part of that aim, Euronext is launching a service that supports the dematerialisation of physical commodity products, and an electronic negotiation facility.
