Global Inventory Management

The central nervous system of financial institutions in the new collateral ecosystem

Global Inventory management has become critical to both buy side and sell side firms transacting in collateralized business lines in recent years.

This paper:

  • Maps the new more integrated, automated and industrialized collateral ecosystem
  • Shows how at the firm level, Global Inventory Management technology acts as the central control function of this new paradigm with a more interoperable market infrastructure as the nervous system
  • Demonstrates how centralization of data allows a holistic focus on deployment of scare resources such as capital, balance sheet and liquidity
  • Discusses future technology trends that will enable collateralized trading to become leaner and more efficient, while addressing some of the structural vulnerabilities of the system through a more robust and flexible infrastructure
