Collateral is one of the building blocks on which the financial markets are constructed. Used for a number of purposes - including trading with central counterparties (CCPs), secured funding with market counterparties and central banks, OTC derivatives margining and settlement - the role of effective collateral management in monetising assets has never been more important.
Until now, policy makers have tended to ignore the complex collateral plumbing that is fundamental to lending and enabling growth in the economy. Attention is now focussed on this important issue.
This book, the first of its kind, is written by the leading authority on collateral Manmohan Singh. He leads you through the complex world highlighting the importance of financial plumbing and provides a practical understanding of how financial collateral moves across jurisdictions. Also, the discussion on restricting collateral velocity and how it links to monetary policy rate cycle is original.
This is a must have guide to navigating the future as rules and regulations for the global financial markets are redrawn.
Through a thorough examination of the role collateral plays in the market you will gain a deeper understanding of complex and important themes that are likely to remain topical in the near future.

"This book provides an authoritative and important reminder that 'collateral' is the oil in the engine of global financial markets. It describes how collateral has morphed over time, its importance for the plumbing of the financial sector and its current monetary policy nexus. Manmohan Singh covers all the bases that the market, its infrastructure, central bankers, legislators and regulators should focus on. The chapter on 'shadow banking' in particular is the first comprehensive perspective on its important intermediation role for the financial sector. He has expertly peered into the future to consider the possible consequences of collateral paucity or the failure of a CCP – too important to fail, too big to save? This book weaves a rich and unique tapestry of a complex subject in an accessible manner."
