Why is IM Thresholdmonitoring so important now?

Regulators across the globe have changed the rules for Regulatory Initial Margin compliance.

These rule changes state that Phase 5 and 6 firms in-scope for Uncleared Margin Rules (UMR) can delay their legal documentation, custodian and operational arrangements if they won’t immediately exceed the €50 million Regulatory IM threshold with each of their counterparties.

By having fingertip access to all your Regulatory IM exposures, Phase 5 and 6 firms can avoid preparing or moving initial margin before they need to.

Developed specifically with Phase 5 & 6 firms in mind

Part of the AcadiaPlus Risk Suite of services, the IMTM service was developed in direct response to changing regulation and client feedback. IM Phase 5 and 6 firms will have some dealer relationships where they will move initial margin immediately on go-live but also have others where they won’t. To save time and money, AcadiaSoft has modified our existing service to support IM Phase 5 and 6 firms that want to delay their documentation and operational IM compliance efforts where possible under the regulations.

It is important to note that the regulations do not extend a grace period to firms who breach the €50 million regulatory IM threshold with their counterparty, therefore having an early warning mechanism to ensure ample time to repaper your CSAs will be required.

IM Phase 1, 2, 3 and 4 firms can supplement their existing data feeds to AcadiaSoft with anticipated IM exposure information versus IM Phase 5 and 6 firms, enabling AcadiaSoft to provide a central view of IM Exposure across all in-scope counterparty relationships – whether your firm is moving margin or not.

The IM monitor service will provide your firm with the crucial data needed for a convenient and centralized tool to track thresholds, ensuring compliance and trading continuity.

Key Features

  • Provides a central repository of counterparty IM exposure across firms’ trading relationships
  • Ideal for clients that are in scope for IM but don’t expect to move margin until after IM Phase 5 or 6 go-live date
  • Phase 1, 2, 3 or 4 firms can enable IM Threshold calculation and monitor via AcadiaSoft on behalf of their clients
