Calypso Voted Collateral Management Product of the Year for Fourth Year Running in Asia Risk Awards

San Francisco, CA, 11 September 2019

Calypso Technology Inc., a leading provider of cross-asset front-to-back technology solutions for financial markets announced today that its Collateral Management solution has been named Product of the Year in the Asia Risk Awards, the longest-running and most prestigious awards for firms and individuals involved in Asia's derivatives markets and risk management.

The three-month long judging process incorporated dozens of off-the-record meetings and concluded with a due diligence phase in which clients were canvassed (also off the record) for their views on shortlisted firms.
Recipient of this accolade for the fourth consecutive year, Calypso Collateral Management is clearly acknowledged as a leader in this space.

Regulatory demands such as variation margin (VM) and the Uncleared Margin Rules (UMR) under BCBS IOSCO are forcing operational changes among financial institutions. Calypso offers a full UMR Margin and Collateral Management solution, which is leveraged by many clients across the world. Even more power, however, comes with use of the wider Calypso solution that provides integration to the front office for “what-if?” analysis, to inventory management and securities financing (including support for SFTR), and to the back office for settlement processing and agent bank connectivity.

Says Richard Bentley, Chief Product and Engineering Officer, Calypso Technology:

“We are delighted to win the Asia Risk Collateral Management award for the fourth consecutive year, recognizing as it does our investment and leadership in this area. Our aim is to make collateral management efficient, optimized and adaptable to the evolving business and regulatory needs of a wide range of clients. We continue to invest in regulatory compliance and integration with utilities and partnerships with custodians, fund service providers and regulatory agencies to provide seamless end-to-end workflow and STP. We are also investing in microservice-based business solutions to bring greater agility and efficiency to our clients.”

The Calypso Collateral Management solution is deployment-agnostic, with clients deciding whether to deploy on-premise, hosted, or hybrid depending on their specific requirements and regulatory constraints.
