Efficient collateral management service targeted for Canada: new plans announced by Clearstream and CDS Clearing and Depository Services -continued

Canada's CDS looks to join Brazil, Australia and South Africa in the use of Clearstream's Liquidity Hub GO (Global Outsourcing) * Exclusive talks to develop a triparty collateral management service for Canada *CDS clients to gain by using collateral more effectively
March 12, 2012--Canadian financial institutions are set to benefit from a new efficient and effective collateral management service planned for development by Clearstream and CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. (CDS). The two companies signed a letter of intent last week and will now move forward in exploring the creation of a new triparty collateral management service for Canada.
The service would enable Canadian market participants to meet demands for collateral in the most cost effective and operationally efficient way possible: CDS, the Canadian central securities depository, would utilise Clearstream’s collateral management infrastructure and the Liquidity Hub GO service to allocate, optimise and substitute domestically held collateral on a fully automated basis and in real time.

Liquidity Hub GO for Canada would reduce operational risks and costs as well as minimize the opportunity cost associated with collateral fragmentation. CDS clients would be able to handle their collateral needs more strategically. Collateral would remain in the domestic market. Clearstream is the only collateral management services provider which can manage collateral across time zones and regions while enabling the assets to remain in the respective domestic market and under local legislation.
