J.P. Morgan Offers SecLending Tools Globally

October 9, 2009 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - J.P. Morgan's Projections & Simulations service is now available globally.

First introduced to European clients, Projections & Simulations is now available to clients in the Western Hemisphere and Asia/Pacific, according to an announcement. Part of the Securities Collateral Management product, Projections & Simulations provides securities borrowers with a set of tools to assess the impact of potential changes to their portfolios, helping them minimize risk and expense while maximizing returns, the announcement said.

Using Projections & Simulations, borrowers can optimize their collateral allocations by viewing the results of “what if” scenarios that analyze both actual and synthetic portfolios.  They can preview the potential impact of adding new securities to the available asset pool or simulate various financing scenarios, modeling increased or decreased financing levels with each counterpart independently. 

The service provides clients with an aggregated view of securities already held at J.P. Morgan plus those held elsewhere – creating a hypothetical portfolio that shows all assets eligible to be allocated as collateral.
