U.S. Bank Selects Rockall's STOC Solution for Enterprise Collateral Management

U.S. Bank selects Rockall's STOC solution for Enterprise Collateral Management; system will provide bank with automated valuation and monitoring that helps reduce risk, improve regulatory compliance.

U.S. Bank (Minneapolis) has selected Rockall Technologies' (Dublin, Charlotte, N.C.) Systematic Tracking of Collateral (STOC) solution for enterprise-wide monitoring and evaluation of marketable securities that collateralize credit facilities and commitments made by several business lines within U.S. Bank.

A primary selection criterion was STOC's ability to fully interoperate and support all interfacing applications, existing technology infrastructures, and enterprise standards, according to Rockall Technologies.
