So how does ECLiPSe help your clients?
What level of service are your clients enjoying?
ECLiPSe also provides our clients with regular portfolio compression analysis to optimise capital usage and portfolio analytics such as “IM Optimiser”, “IM and VM Forecast”, “Sensitivities”, “Scenario Analysis and Shocks” and “What-if Scenario”.
Standard Chartered has been developing the repo business for a few years now especially across Asia and you seem to be growing steadily. Give us a quick download of what you offer.
Ed Donald: We offer a competitively priced range of Fixed Income Repo products acting as principal, trading actively in G3 currency Government bond repo as well as on supranationals, financials, corporates, emerging market debt and local currency Government Bonds.
Our team of experienced and dedicated traders and sales professionals based in Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, Johannesburg, London and New York gives us excellent access to global repo and funding markets. We are focused on delivering real solutions for clients ranging from liquidity management, collateral optimisation, yield enhancement, financing trades and can execute in most Asian local currency repo markets as well as the more liquid G3 markets.
So how else do you help your clients?
Donald: Through the strength of Standard Chartered Bank’s balance sheet, we find that our clients value consistency of liquidity in terms of pricing as well as on balance allocation. Many clients are currently getting closed out by banks who cut their balance sheet during the periods where it is most needed. At Standard Chartered, our clients tell us that they find our offering of consistency attractive.
We work to understand the regulatory pressures that affect our clients now and in the future globally, where there is different application and speed of Basel III implementation. Through our global network, we can help our clients with collateral transformation, optimisation and short term liquidity management. Finally, we are also seeing increasing requirements for cross-currency repo across our footprint, and we are best positioned to meet these needs given our strong FX franchise.
