Bloomberg and Acadia, specialists in risk management, have integrated Bloomberg’s Multi Asset Risk System (MARS) with Acadia’s IMEM (Initial Margin Exposure Manager) module. The integration will provide Standard Initial Margin Model (SIMM) pre-trade analytics, and will support Phase 6 of the Uncleared Margin Rule (UMR) obligations, part of the longstanding initial margin rule framework created by the Basel Committee and IOSCO. The addition of the pre-trade SIMM analytics expands Bloomberg’s existing post-trade integration with Acadia, which enables in-scope market participants to calculate initial margin for uncleared derivatives, and provides access to calculation of risk sensitivities through both Bloomberg and Acadia.
