ADB outsources derivatives collateral management to ABN Amro

The Dutch bank will act as collateral agent to ADB and take on responsibility for marking derivatives collateral to market while also handling margin calls and settlement. To maintain confidentiality with counterparties, ADB will continue to value its own derivatives transactions.

“Collateral management is important for managing the counterparty risk in the bank’s derivatives portfolio,” said Juan Limandibrata, assistant treasurer and head of funding at ADB. “The decision to outsource is based on an analysis of the incremental resources required internally versus the cost and flexibility of outsourcing," he added. "ABN Amro has enabled ADB to implement an effective collateral programme.”
