Euroclear Bank has announced an expansion of its existing partnership with Eurex Clearing, becoming an eligible securities collateral location of the CCP. With this change, mutual clients of the two institutions will be able to post collateral directly Eurex Clearing and optimise the pool of collateral held at Euroclear’s international CSD.

According to a statement published by Euroclear Bank, the new service “increases operational efficiency for market participants and streamlines the collateral management process”. Prior to this expansion of their partnership, Euroclear Bank was already an eligible securities settlement location for Eurex Clearing.

In a statement, Matthias Graulich, chief strategy officer and member of the executive board of Eurex Clearing said that the new service would facilitate a smooth access to the CCP and enable efficiencies across the clearing community. It also strengthens the firm’s offering for its buy-side clients, and is a complement to existing services such as direct clearing access suite ISA Direct and ISA Direct Indemnified clearing models.


Matthias Graulich will be speaking at the PostTrade 360° Nordic conference in Stockholm on 4–5 September. Sign up to join the conference for free here.
