Spot vs Future Cross Margin Model
Bequant uses a Risk Ratio (RR) methodology to manage loans.
The risk ratio represents the ratio of the market value of the digital assets that the client has borrowed to the market value of the total sum of discounted collaterals (eligible).
Eligible collateral is an asset that a lender accepts as security for a loan. If the borrower defaults on the loan payments, the lender can seize the collateral and resell it to recoup the losses.
Total margin consists of the hedged / unhedged positions multiplied with a set of haircuts. These haircuts are based on position and asset type - with larger haircuts for hedged positions and liquid assets:
Available assets are the amount of your eligible collateral that is available to withdraw or to use on trading, if the amount turns negative, you must top up your account with eligible collateral equal to this amount (margin call amount).
The list of the Collateral accepted are as below. Any coin not listed will be discounted by 100%.

Risk ratio levels, margin call & liquidation rules
BEQUANT monitors two Risk Ratio levels: Initial and Liquidation.
These levels are set to 90% and 100% respectively.
If your RR goes above the Initial RR Level BEQUANT will issue you with a Margin Call. You have twelve hours to add additional funds to your Account such that your RR Ratio goes back below the Initial Level.
If your RR falls above the Liquidation RR Level, or if you have not responded to a Margin Call within twelve hours, BEQUANT reserves the right to commence liquidating your account until it determines that enough of the loan has been repaid.
Sensible risk management should be employed when using leveraged positions: We recommend you set both a stop loss and a profit target for every opened position.
A client has a total margin of 10 BTC when considering the sum of all hedged and unhedged positions over each currency held, multiplied with the associated haircuts. i.e:
Hedged margin = hedged position * hedged discount
Unhedged margin = unhedged position * unhedged discount
These haircuts are determined based on liquidity of the coins in question as well as position (hedged and un-hedged):
If the same client has 20 BTC worth of eligible collaterals and sum of client’s loans are equivalent to 9 BTC; then the risk ratio will be 90%:
If this is above the MC RR and below the Liq RR, a margin call may be sent to the client. If this RR is above liquidation threshold, Bequant may choose to liquidate the clients’ assets.
