The International Capital Markets Association (ICMA) has published a directory listing 80+ FinTech technology providers offering services in the repo operations space.

The directory groups providers and their products/solutions by categories across collateral management, corporate actions, trade matching, confirmation and reconciliation, liquidity monitoring and reporting, communication and workflow tools, among others – along with short descriptions and relevant contact details.

ICMA said that it aims to develop 'a better understanding of existing tools and emerging FinTech solutions for collateral management and ancillary services'. There are over 80 technology solutions currently represented and ICMA intends to update the directory on a regular basis to include more.

While clearly of relevance to clients managing collateral portfolios in connection with their repo and securities lending programmes and in the trade finance sector, these solutions are potentially relevant to other lending and trading platform providers and developers.

The directory may also be of interest to our technology clients who offer solutions that are not already listed. Applications to be added in future updates should be directed to the ICMA contacts noted in ICMA's announcement.
