Preparation starts now

Calculate your inputs, manage your margin calls and resolve your disputes with TriOptima’s seamless initial margin service. With one simple trade file you can benefit from an end-to-end solution, with no complicated integration or installation required.

The mandatory exchange of initial margin (IM) is being phased in based on a notional threshold which reduces over time. Under the new rules, potentially thousands of firms will come into scope for IM between now and September 2020. Preparation will take significant time and require “intensive work to ensure systems, processes and documentation are in place,” according to ISDA. The time to begin preparing is now. For more detail, read our step-by-step guide on initial margin preparation.

OUR SEAMLESS SOLUTION

Calculate your inputs

Margin calculations must be performed using an approved model, or pre-defined schedule. With one simple trade file, triCalculate provides out-of-the-box sensitivity calculations for the market's preferred model, ISDA SIMM™.

Manage your calls

An efficient workflow for exchanging and agreeing margin calls with your counterparties is essential. triResolve Margin automatically captures IM amounts, enabling automated exception-based margin call exchange. 

Resolve your disputes

Differences will inevitably arise when your input data is different to that of your counterparty. AcadiaSoft's Initial Margin Exposure Manager (powered by TriOptima) identifies the differences driving the disputes and helps you to reach a resolution and minimize future disputes.

Threshold Monitoring

With a simple trade file, TriOptima can calculate your IM exposure and give you the transparency you need to effecitvely monitor your IM thresholds. Learn more about our IM threshold monitoring solution.

HOW DOES IT WORK

ESA Update


A new update from the European Supervisory Authorities provides more certainty for those firms planning UMR compliance. In updating their own Regulatory Technical Standards the ESA bring Europe in line with other global regulators by adding their support for the BCBS/IOSCO recommendation to split the remaining IM phase into two. This confirms an increase in AANA for phase 5 firms from €8 to €50bn, and the introduction for a new phase 6, effective September 2021 for firms with AANA above €8bn.
