Collateral

All assets, securities or liquidity, pledged by the debtor counterparty to the crediting counterparty in order to hedge credit risk resulting from financial transactions between the two parties. In the event of debtor default, the creditor has the right to hold the collateralized assets as compensation for the ensuing financial loss.
