Seamlessly connecting collateral givers and receivers


Farzana Khan


The demand for collateral will only increase into the future. Our aim is to support the South African capital market in monetising securities as collateral and realising the benefits of enhanced liquidity, collateral fluidity and risk reduction.

Enhancing market liquidity

Strate’s Collateral Services supports the South African financial markets by enhancing market liquidity, enabling collateral fluidity and, among other things, helping to mitigate counterparty credit risks.

Supporting growth

in the wider economy

Through our central collateral platform offering, we aim to support growth in the wider economy by contributing to an efficient and effective capital market in South Africa that aligns to international standards.

Mobilising assets

other than cash

Using best-of-breed technology in a secure environment, we facilitate the traceable re-use and mobilisation of assets as collateral, reducing the demand for cash.

A leading technology approach

Through our effective, end-to-end solution for market participants, developed in partnership with Clearstream, part of the Deutsche Borsë Group, we offer:

  • Automated selection, allocation and optimisation of collateral across a range of contractual obligations
  • Unlimited collateral substitution in accordance with eligibility, sales and corporate events
  • Collateral management by perfection of pledge or outright title transfer
  • Re-use of securities, if permitted, with traceability of collateral within a secure environment
  • Daily evaluation and reconciliation of collateral across all contractual obligations
  • Real-time monitoring of collateral eligibility and sufficiency, for both givers and receivers
