The solution comprises of comprehensive security eligibility controls, multi-dimensional collateral management, collateral pool accounts to maintain the securities of multiple currencies held in multiple depositories, and real-time re-assessment of the pool and generation of margin call and security release. The CMS system helps improve the liquidity in the system, reduces cost, time and minimizes errors.
