SGSS mandated by CNP Assurances for collateral management services

SGSS has been mandated by CNP Assurances to provide collateral management services with regard to collateral swaps between CNP Assurances and its counterparties.

SGSS won this mandate following a bidding process launched by CNP Assurances in order to adapt to the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), which amongst other requirements, imposes more frequent collateral margin calls. In order to meet these new requirements, SGSS’ offer is centred around two main elements: managing relations with CNP Assurances’ counterparties and monitoring margin calls and compliance with reporting requirements. SGSS will manage collateral on the basis of contracts traded by CNP Assurances.

SGSS was chosen for its expertise in complex financial products and its capacity to adapt to constantly changing regulations and provide services tailored to the specific needs of its clients. This appointment completes the structured instrument valuation services that SGSS has provided to CNP Assurances for many years.
