Tom @ HStarr's curator insight, July 29, 2013 7:29 AM

The word Tax is always contraversial and can have the unintended outcome of creating doubt in the market. Whilst potentially a good idea I think there are better ways to execute this in order to supervise the HFT Traders.

LCH.Clearnet to Clear Credit Default Swaps for European Clients

LCH.Clearnet, the multi-national central counterparty’s Paris-based European CCP, has received regulatory approval to clear credit default swaps (CDS) for European clients, through CDSClear, LCH.Clearnet’s credit default swap clearing business.


This is the first time European clients will be able to clear CDS indices and, subject to regulatory approval, LCH.Clearnet expects soon to be able to offer single name CDS, both of which will bring greater efficiency to the marketplace.


CDSClear’s index clearing service offers European clients improved portability conditions through its Asset Tagging solution. Asset Tagging allows clearing members to track which of their client-related non-cash collateral and positions could be “ported” (i.e. transferred) to another member in the event of a default, in line with EMIR requirements.


The index clearing service also streamlines the legal documentation process between clients and clearing members.


CDSClear’s single name clearing service will provide clients with extensive portfolio margining benefits.

Charlie Longden, CEO, CDSClear said, "Global regulatory momentum is leading OTC market participants to clearing houses with robust and proven risk and default management. LCH.Clearnet clears the broadest set of European credit indices, and we are pleased to extend the benefits of our CDS clearing service to European clients."


Barry Hadingham, Head of Derivatives and Counterparty Risk, Aviva Investors, said, “The market has been looking for a European CDS clearing solution for some time now, and we welcome LCH.Clearnet’s launch of CDS clearing for non-US clients. We are particularly pleased to see that the solution offers improved portability conditions and easy to navigate legal arrangements.”


Clearing members will continue to benefit from the ability to post non-cash collateral on a pledged account opened in the books of a Central Securities Depository (CSD) to cover their margin requirements.
