Maximize Capital for FHLB Pledging

Maximize Capital

Pledge Manager’s unique process eliminates duplicate pledging of loans with either automated or manual pledging options.  Automatic pledging allows loans to move freely between the FHLB and FRB based on collateral eligibility, maximizing available capital.  Manual pledging allows loans to be manually set by users with recommendations provided by Pledge Manager.​

Meet Regulatory and Audit Requirements

Automated processing of files eliminates the manual movement of data thereby helping to meet regulatory and audit requirements.  All jobs and any changes are captured for audit.   Collateral eligibility logic, submission criteria, rules, and formulas are consistent and clearly auditable.  Screens allow for review of file details to ensure accuracy.

Collateral Submission and Eligibility Audits

Automatic FHLB Pledge Collateral Submission Formats

Pledge Manager comes  with maps to import data from your source applications (such as loan servicing and origination systems) for analysis and submission.  Collateral submission processes evaluate the collateral eligibility and prepare the data for each funding destination in the correct format and with the required data content.  Changes to pledge submission content can be made in minutes requiring no programming and are fully audited.
