LONDON and NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- TriOptima, a leading infrastructure service that helps to lower costs and to mitigate risk in OTC derivatives markets, announced the completion of its first triBalance FX cycle optimizing exposures for clients who calculate their leverage ratio capital requirements under the Standardized Approach for Measuring Counterparty Credit Risk (SA-CCR). Bilateral and cleared initial margin exposures were simultaneously optimized in the FX cycle that took place on October 29, 2020.
The triBalance service has been available for cleared and bilateral transactions since 2017. triBalance generates a customized set of new risk reducing transactions that allow clients to redistribute bilateral exposures within TriOptima's multilateral network to manage counterparty credit risk.
"TriOptima is preparing FX clients for the new SA-CCR requirements that are currently being phased in across the major jurisdictions before the end of next year," said Philip Junod, Senior Director, triReduce and triBalance Business Management. "Being the first to include the all-in net exposures in our optimization cycle helps us support our network of thirty banks, the largest multilateral network in the industry, as they seek to reduce their counterparty risk and manage their capital exposures."
TriOptima runs weekly FX optimization cycles for 30 currency pairs and will include SA-CCR optimization in all future cycles.
