Capital, funding and risk optimization

A low touch, cross-asset class optimization service targeting multiple risk measures simultaneously.

Celebrating one year of SA-CCR capital optimisation

We have been running monthly optimisation cycles proactively managing SA-CCR and RWA exposures, while simultaneously optimising initial margin, for over a year. Firms from APAC, EU, UK, US and Canada have used the service since launch on 29 October 2020.

Optimisation of counterparty credit risk allows proactive management of capital and funding exposures for OTC derivatives portfolios. TriOptima’s solution enables you to address the key issues that drive the cost of maintaining a portfolio simultaneously:

  • Capital costs, driven by Leverage ratio as well as standardised and internal model driven RWA via SA-CCR and IMM
  • Funding costs, resulting from non-cleared margin and CCP IM
  • Gross exposures impacting G-SIB, balance sheet, and general housekeeping

Our solution supports all major asset classes.

Network built for optimal efficiency

Achieve optimal efficiency by joining our large and growing network of participating firms. Over decades, TriOptima’s award winning optimization and compression services, have attracted a strong network with more than 200 regularly participating firms, forming the foundation for current and future optimisation offerings.  Over 40 firms are already optimising counterparty credit risk (CCR) to reduce capital and/or funding exposures – driving cost savings up to $100 million per year for the industry.
