BNY Mellon automates calculation of collateral requirements in ETF marketplace

RELATED TOPICS​

BNY Mellon has automated the calculation of collateral requirements in the exchange-traded funds (ETF) marketplace. 

The BNY Mellon enhancement is designed to reduce errors in ETF transactions and improve the ability of authorized participants (APs) to manage and allocate funds.
 
The primary market in ETFs is driven by APs which are large financial institutions/broker dealers that trade the underlying securities during the creation or redemption of ETF units.
 
BNY Mellon has developed an automated process for calculating collateral requirements and reporting them to the APs on a daily basis.  Prior to this enhancement, the APs were notified through a manual process.
 
“More efficient and automated transactions will further enhance the reliability and attractiveness of the ETF marketplace,” says Joseph Keenan, head of global ETF services for BNY Mellon. “Authorised participants that work with BNY Mellon will have better reporting and better management of the cash collateral they employ in the marketplace.”
 
With many funds, APs have the option of delivering a basket of securities or cash collateral to an ETF servicer, such as BNY Mellon, when creating new ETF fund shares.  By posting cash collateral on the settlement date of an ETF order, APs can ensure that the ETFs shares are released in a timely manner even if some components of the ETF basket cannot be delivered by settlement date. The collateral remains in the ETF servicer’s account until delivery of the components of the basket covered by the collateral.
