J.P. Morgan Launches Repo Trade Matching Engine
These Lenders-including asset managers, pensions, and government institutions-will be able to view the matching status of their trades through J.P. Morgan's proprietary Repo Access platform.
This new functionality will enhance the operating model of the US Tri-Party Repo market, in support of the May 2010 recommendations of the Tri-Party Repo Infrastructure Task Force sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York's private sector Payments Risk Committee.
Tri-Party Repo Dealers will be able to view the matching status of their trades through J.P. Morgan's Broker Dealer Automated System (BDAS).
Collateral management is a vital risk management tool for institutions seeking to generate additional value from their portfolios while effectively managing their credit risk.
J.P. Morgan's fixed income clearing and collateral management solution helps clients seamlessly manage their government clearance and tri-party repo financing needs, with automation and technology that integrates these activities to better manage net exposure.
Repo Access and the Repo Trade Matching Engine are the latest in a series of innovative new products and services being introduced as part of J.P. Morgan's Global Collateral Engine initiative, a multiyear strategic investment program to deliver fully global, enterprise-wide collateral management.
Mark Trivedi, executive director for global custody and clearing at J.P. Morgan, said: â€œThis functionality is a key step towards improving market transparency, a primary area of focus for the Task Force.
â€œBy introducing this functionality early, cash lenders in the J.P. Morgan tri-party program get an advance start on their transition to the new matching process." J.P. Morgan is introducing these new tools and processes to its cash lender clients, prior to the August 2011 deadline set for the Task Force for three-way trade matching.â€
Will the launch enhance J.P. Morgan's product portfolio?
