Job Description

PURPOSE OF THE JOB To support Collateralised Agreements managed within Collateral Management Operations, both for derivative security lending and repo activity for Third Party Clients. The Third Party Collateral Management Group processes the Net Present Value of the portfolio of trades between its clients and its counterparties on a daily (or as specified) basis and ensure that this exposure is sufficiently collateralised.

The process requires comparison of exposures with the value of the assets pledged, in accordance with the parameters specified in the legal agreement. Changes in the portfolio PV (due to market price fluctuations, or new / matured trades) will generate changes in the required collateral balance.
