Report Treasury Operations: From Basics to Optimal.


Figuring out what to do with excess collateral is far harder than excess cash, because it involves knowing not only which counterparty and transaction are owed collateral, but also whether it is less or more than necessary to back a transaction. “As a rule of thumb, broker-dealers will always ask for more collateral, but never return extra unnecessary collateral,” says Ritesh Rathi, executive vice president of fund services for Viteos Fund Services. “Therefore, fund managers need to make certain they do the right margin calculations quickly enough.”

Do they? Chances are they might when it comes to knowing whether a margin call asking for more collateral is accurate. However, once they have sent out the collateral they could easily forget to do follow up calculations on whether they should ask for any return of collateral. Rathi estimates that about half of the 25 percent of disputed margin calls involve overcollateralization.
