Background
OTC Derivatives, Repos and Securities Lending and Borrowing are now recognised as very sensitive areas inside many Securities Operations departments, whether on the Buy or Sell sides.
 
As the demise of Lehman Brothers showed, besides a number of unpublicised hiccups, Collateral Management within these activities is a critical function in mitigating counterparty risk and in ensuring exposures are covered by the proper  taking/giving of collateral.
 
This course looks at Collateral Management in OTC Derivatives in particular as well as Repos and Securities Lending and Borrowing. Risk identification, control, documentation, types of collateral, gross and net exposure and other practical aspects are covered as well as the conceptual framework and practical problems egg the treatment of corporate actions on a borrowed/lent position.
 
A basic knowledge of and work experience in the Securities Industry is assumed as well as an awareness of Securities Lending or Repos. Specific knowledge of Securities Lending and Repos is not assumed.
