Collateral Trading

Collateral Trading

EQUILEND COLLATERAL TRADING is designed for funding or financing desks to effectively trade collateral. This platform, to be released in Q1 2020, will allow for a centralized way for clients to execute and manage trade structures with their counterparties. The initial rollout will support collateral upgrades and downgrades and will be screen-based.

How It Works

  • Bid and Offer

    Counterparties can post bids and/or offers for the collateral upgrade or downgrade trade structure

  • Negotiate and Agree

    Clients can negotiate and agree on fixed, evergreen and extendible trade baskets on the platform

  • Allocate and Communicate

    After the basket has been agreed, clients can allocate the underlying basket constituents or collateral and communicate it to one another

  • Manage Trade Lifecycle

    Throughout the tenure of the loan, clients can manage trade lifecycle events such as substitutions and transaction rolls


Market transparency and price discovery

A view into the basket trading environment does not exist today, and this will provide insight to potential trading opportunities

Efficiency and organization of basket trading all in one place

The ability to view balances across counterparties and manage their baskets efficiently in one venue

SFTR compliance
