Replace Higher-Cost Funding and/or Repurpose Collateral

ICS® and CDARS® enable Promontory Network members to replace higher-cost funding (e.g., repurchase sweeps and letters of credit) and reduce collateralization requirements. By replacing collateralized deposits with ICS and/or CDARS deposits, banks can improve asset liquidity, repurpose funds previously invested in collateral into higher-earning assets, reduce collateral-tracking costs, and lower the risk of shortfall due to collateral-value deterioration.
