Many brokers claim to be the best, but on closer examination, you discover gaps in the quality of their services. What Is a Prime Brokerage? In comparison with other brokers, these brands offer superior and more sophisticated services. They have working relationships with reputable regulators in tier-1 jurisdictions and allow clients to access multiple liquidity sources. Reliable custody services will give you peace of mind, as the companies offer advanced protection for all deposits.
Such brokers are usually part of large multinational groups which offer services to retail forex traders. Instead of simply covering their requirements in the interbank market in order to maintain liquidity, Bear Stearns was forced to seek emergency funding, leading to the intervention of the Federal Reserve in the form of an underwritten take-over by JP Morgan. So, now it is also imperative that hedge fund managers scrutinise the credit rating of their counterparts.
Otherwise they would run the risk of having their assets frozen in the event of default by their prime broker, with the added nightmare of becoming a creditor to a bank in administration. In order to protect their investment, investors must demand that hedge funds and their prime brokers have proper robust controls, both legal and otherwise, on an on-going basis. This sea-change in the relationship between hedge funds and their prime brokers will result in changes to the ways in which they conduct themselves, particularly in the following areas: Collateral The collateral management function at some prime brokers will become vital to their continuing in business.
There will be increasing reluctance to accept securities as collateral for certain positions and for stock loans; why increase your market and foreign exchange risks? Even some currencies may become more desirable than others; with the traditional dollar becoming increasingly unstable, and even unwanted by investors, some prime brokers may decide to take only Euros, say, or Swiss francs. This will further increase the complexity of trades for hedge fund managers as the foreign exchange element may also need to be hedged.
In a rapidly moving market, margin can be quickly eroded. This can be used as a selling point to their hedge fund clients as in a falling market they would benefit from swift marking to market by ensuring that they are not over-collateralising. Margins Margins will continue to increase, which means a reduction in the leverage available to hedge funds. Cross margining of some products might be withdrawn, leading to increased margin calls.
It is likely that a wider range of securities will have to be paid for in full by the hedge fund. Again, larger hedge fund managers should look to lock in their margin terms, so they have enough time to position themselves if and when margins are changed by their prime brokers. The type of securities traded will also be of paramount importance to the hedge fund manager when margins are changing. In addition, equities are far easier to price and much more liquid than some of the more esoteric OTC and thinly traded securities and transactions entered into by the fixed income and macro funds.
Size matters Competition between prime brokers will undoubtedly decrease in the short term. This could lead to an even more divided industry, with two or three firms dominating the stage. Similarly, smaller, less well rated and less well known prime brokers will suffer.
It is well worth checking credit ratings as even the large established firms may not be quite what they seem. For example, the prime broker unit may be a separate legal entity to the parent bank, which would have many ramifications in the event of a default. Cash is king It is certainly true that the lucky cash-rich hedge funds are well placed to buy up assets at below market value from distressed hedge fund managers needing to make an urgent margin call.
For example, we saw Citadel buying the assets of Amaranth Advisors energy fund in and Sowood Capital Management in , when the stricken hedge funds struggled to stay afloat as their investments went against them. Stock loan The situation for the long only asset managers should not be dire since they already have collateral in excess of the loan market value, which is marked to market daily. For some of these custodians active in the stock lending market the priority will be to reduce their credit exposure to less well-rated prime brokers.
Collateral requirements for stock loans may also change, both in quantity and quality, which will again reduce the leverage available to hedge funds with large short books. Prime brokers will pass on any increases in their costs due to these more stringent third party collateral requirements to their hedge fund clients, again resulting in higher fees overall. Segregated accounts Inevitably this will raise the issue of segregated accounts; larger hedge funds could well demand that their cash is kept in segregated accounts, rather than co-mingled with that of other hedge funds, and indeed the balances of the prime broker itself.
This will increase administrative burden on prime brokers and these resulting costs will again inevitably get passed on to their clients.
