Banque Pictet Taps Calypso for Collateral Management

Swiss private bank to improve operational efficiency, meet OTC regs with Calypso’s collateral solution.

Based in Geneva, Banque Pictet has US $437 billion under management or in custody as of December 2014.

The Calypso solution will aggregate the collateral pools across the banks business lines to improve processing of margin calls. It will replace an intensely manual collateral management system that was difficult to scale and will help the bank with new customers and regulatory requirements on initial margin for both listed and over-the-counter contracts.

Calypso met the functional requirements and managed interface to Pictet's core banking system and key downstream systems such as AcadiaSoft for margin call confirmations and messaging for collateral pledges.
