Lombard Risk, the leading dedicated global provider of collateral management and regulatory reporting solutions, has been a Smart Communications partner since October 2017. Through this partnership, the two companies deliver end-to-end automated legal negotiation and margin call management. The joint offering enables data to be seamlessly extracted from agreements negotiated in the SmartDX™ documentation solution and passed through to Lombard Risk’s COLLINE® automated cross-asset collateral management platform. By integrating Lombard Risk’s COLLINE® with SmartDX™, the combined offering provides both buy- and sell-side firms with a strategic, cloud-based digital contract negotiation platform that automates margin call management. Bilateral negotiation of digitized collateral agreements in SmartDX™ enables the collateral data points and valuation terms to be extracted from the agreement, facilitating automated processing of margin calculations in the COLLINE platform. Through this integration, firms eliminate manual inefficiencies, increase accuracy and automation, reduce compliance risks, and minimize operational costs.
