Our Team

Our DocHubTM is made up of lawyers and paralegals drawn from the financial services industry, whose expertise and diligence matches that of our clients’ own teams. We have the skills and experience you need. By engaging us, you can be confident that we will handle your day-to-day contract requirements or complete your project whilst placing minimal burden upon you.

We help our clients ‘square the resourcing circle’; 
solving the problem that having only finite internal expertise and resources to meet the volatile demand for contract management support creates. Banks, asset manager and hedge funds trust us to manage their day-to-day contract requirements. Our flexible, cost effective and high-quality services deliver outstanding outcomes for our clients, driving down costs whilst liberating their in-house teams to focus on core risk issues and higher value activities.

Our Expertise

Our key strengths – and what makes us different – are knowledge and experience. DRS was founded by practitioners who have worked in the finance industry for many years and therefore have the first-hand experience of the challenges faced by our clients.

Our research experts constantly scan the regulatory horizon to ensure that we are aware of the environment within which our clients operate and the impact this has on the relationships with their counterparties. We then deliver that knowledge and capability to our clients via the DocHubTM – our outsourced contract management team based in London and Newcastle.

The types of contracts that we typically handle for our clients are:

  • ISDA Master Agreements
  • ISDA Credit Support Annexes & Deeds (VM & IM)
  • Collateral Transfer Agreements/Account Control Agreements
  • Global Master Repurchase Agreements
  • Global Master Securities Lending Agreements
  • Cleared Derivative Execution Agreements
  • Amendment/replication agreement
  • Novation agreements
  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Terms of business

How We Work

We partner with our clients to deliver a seamless experience by making the effort to understand their standards and processes; we will adapt to your requirements, not the other way around.

We understand the technical and practical challenges inherent in managing complex contracts within a dynamic regulatory environment.  We can assist you with a small number of contracts or manage scenarios where thousands of agreements need to be negotiated, amended and/or assessed. We combine our knowledge and experience with our process management capability to deliver services that maximise efficiency and minimise cost without diminishing the quality of the end product.

What Drives Our Success

Our ability to deliver successful outcomes for our clients is driven by the fact that we are:

Knowledgeable.

We commit ourselves to continuous investigation so that our understanding of the complex markets within which you operate remains second to none.

Collaborative.

We will work in tandem with you. We won’t seek to impose a particular way of working but will tailor our services to fit your particular needs.

Accountable.

We understand that you will rely upon us to manage important and sensitive matters and we accept that trust and responsibility willingly.
