Apex Collateral is FIS’ innovative solution for collateral management, optimization and trading on a single platform. It helps collateral traders, risk professionals, operations staff and senior management manage and optimize their collateral on an enterprise-wide basis.
Not all institutions will want to replace their collateral management infrastructure wholesale, so Apex Collateral is structured in a modular way. You can pick and choose the elements of the platform that best fit your specific requirements.
Apex Collateral provides:
- A real-time global inventory that you can use to trade directly from as well as manage your firm’s collateral asset pool in the most optimal way
- A consolidated view of assets across products, asset classes and geographies, helping you to keep track of who collateral is held from and what it's posted with and at what rate across the firm
- Numerical optimization algorithms to minimize cost of collateral and maximize return on assets
- Tailored, cross-product support for collateral operations, incorporating flexible agreement management and workflows
- An intelligent workflow that offers at-a-glance management of delivering, receiving, reconciling and responding to collateral queries and disputes
- Real-time global exposures at both the client and the counterparty level, helping you understand collateral management risk
