EffCom AG merges with the LPA Group
About one year after the acquisition, the specialist for process automation, document management and securities solutions EffCom AG is being completely transferred as brand and legal entity to Lucht Probst Associates GmbH. Since November 2019, the long-established Baden-Württemberg company has already been operating under the umbrella of the LPA Group, but still under its own name EffCom AG. With the planned merger, both companies take into account the close cooperation of the last year and open up the possibility to intensify this even more in the future by simplifying and synchronizing bureaucratic processes. With this step, the LPA Group would also like to expressly reaffirm its commitment to the EffCom management, employees and customers.   

Together with EffCom board member Peter Zugmantel, who will remain on board after the merger as head of the Ludwigshafen site, the LPA Group is pursuing with great intensity the goal of becoming the world's leading developer and provider of technology-based capital market solutions and playing a decisive role in shaping the transformation of the capital markets.    

The purely formal legal act of the merger has no impact on customers and employees. All current EffCom employees will in future be employees of Lucht Probst Associates GmbH, which will then also be the contractual partner for all EffCom AG customers. The product portfolio around innovative software solutions will also remain unchanged and will in future only trade under the name of Lucht Probst Associates GmbH.

CSA Management: One of the most underrated aspects of the IBOR transition?

The IBOR transition brings many changes to the capital markets sector. One of the critical challenges of transition management is the amendment of collateralization for OTC derivatives. PAI (and implicitly discounting) needs to be adapted for EUR and USD-cash collateral from EONIA and EFFR to the new Risk Free Rates (RFRs) €STR and SOFR. This has to be done by the end of 2021 [1] (EUR) and the end of 2020 [2] (USD), respectively. While the adjustment for cleared derivatives is managed centrally by the CCPs, counterparties of bilaterally collateralized derivative portfolios must amend the collateral agreements by themselves. This requires EONIA or EFFR based legacy CSAs to be negotiated and compensation payments between counterparties to be settled. Complexity is increased further as many market participants still have some non-standardized legacy CSAs with features such as embedded floors or thresholds in place.
