During the Term of the Loan
Throughout the life of a LOAN vs. Non-Cash collateral, it is accepted that a borrower must collateralize a pending/settled position with appropriate, eligible assets that meet the parameters of the associated collateral schedule AND collateralize the loan to the required margin level.
In situations where a loan or loan book is under-collateralized, based on last available COB pricing, the collateral taker should initiate a request or a call for additional collateral to be agreed, instructed and settled that day.
Start-of-day collateral requests or calls should be initiated as early as possible in the business day - no earlier than 9am (UK), no later than 11am (UK). Additional intraday and EOD movements should be supported on- demand - but no later than 6pm (UK).
If a Borrower needs to recall a Non-Cash collateral position, then a substitution must be arranged and settled before the recalled security can be released.
All Non-Cash collateral activity should be proactively monitored by both parties and should settle on the same day it is agreed and instructed.
If a collateral movement is failing, then there may be a need to cancel/renegotiate/replace/reinstruct the collateral.
Failure to settle collateral 'on-time' may lead to business escalation AND a delay in new loan activity being committed to market.
End of Day exposure may result in regulatory communication. (IBP-194 UNDER ISLA REVIEW)
