Eurex and CCorp to Immediately Roll out Phase I of the Global Clearing Link
First transatlantic clearing link to go live/ Lower cost clearing access for U.S. traders/ Margin offsets and collateral pooling between USD and EUR products for the first time
Eurex: The Clearing Corporation (CCorp) and Eurex Clearing AG today announced they will immediately roll out Phase I of their Global Clearing Link. The Global Clearing Link is the first transatlantic clearing link to go live. It will significantly increase the efficiency of global derivatives markets. It will facilitate low cost clearing access to Eurex from the U.S. and will substantially reduce costs through margin offsets and collateral pooling between USD- and EUR-denominated products. The Global Clearing Link provides the U.S. clearing community with direct access to European trading, bringing new business opportunities to the U.S.
The Global Clearing Link builds on Eurex’s remote clearing concept, first introduced in 2000. Phase I of the Link extends Eurex’s immediate distribution to the U.S. by leveraging CCorp’s ex-isting network of clearing participants. The number of clearing partners eligible to be connected to the network will increase by 66 percent.
“With the Global Clearing Link we are connecting the U.S. and European derivative markets and offering clearing choice for the first time. The partnership with CCorp allows us to immediately leverage connectivity to the U.S. clearing community to the benefit of our mutual customers”, said Rudolf Ferscha, CEO of Eurex. “This substantially reduces costs of access to Eurex from the U.S. and increases clearing flexibility”.
Dennis Dutterer, President and CEO of The Clearing Corporation, commented “The benefits of Phase I of the Global Clearing Link are consistent with CCorp’s long-standing model of offering clearing services on a cost competitive basis to clearing participants. The link enables us to extend our business model internationally, thereby expanding client access and increasing market efficiency”.
The first phase of the Global Clearing Link brings immediate benefits to customers: cost reductions through lower clearing fees and higher capital efficiencies, as well as clearing access to European trading within the U.S. regulatory framework. The Global Clearing Link will result in the lowest transatlantic clearing fees, bringing the cost for small and midsize participants down to the level of wholesale pricing. It allows more efficient use of capital through portfolio margining and the use of one common collateral pool for EUR and USD products. New products to be introduced on Eurex US will benefit from immediate offset against the European benchmark range.
Phase I of the Global Clearing Link enables CCorp clearing participants to consolidate in a single clearing account at CCorp their U.S. positions traded on Eurex US and their positions in certain European benchmark derivatives traded at Eurex. CCorp clearing participants will also be able to benefit from portfolio margining between EUR and USD products and one common collateral pool, greatly reducing costs. A further important feature of the Global Clearing Link is that traders clearing European products through CCorp clearing participants will be able to keep their margin funds in a segregated environment, benefiting from U.S. rules regarding fiduciary obligations of intermediaries and the U.S. insolvency regime.
In Phase II, members of Eurex Clearing will be able to clear USD and EUR benchmark products traded at Eurex US, and use one common collateral pool to portfolio-margin European and U.S. products. Certain European benchmark derivatives currently traded exclusively on Eurex will be cross-listed on Eurex US, allowing for 21 hours of trading and full fungibility of these products. Implementation of Phase II is subject to regulatory approval from the Commodity Futures Trad-ing Commission and European regulators.

Solarthermie ist in der breiten Öffentlichkeit derzeit durch dunkelblaue, rechteckige Kollektoren auf Hausdächern besetzt. Für ästhetisch hochwertige Architektur werden Technologien benötigt, die dem Architekten mehr Gestaltungsspielraum für Niedrigst- und Plusenergiegebäude geben. Im Projekt »ArKol« entwickeln Forscher des Fraunhofer ISE gemeinsam mit Partnern aktuell zwei Fassadenkollektoren für solare Wärmeerzeugung, die ein hohes Maß an Designflexibilität erlauben: einen Streifenkollektor für opake sowie eine solarthermische Jalousie für transparente Fassadenanteile. Der aktuelle Stand der beiden Entwicklungen wird auf der BAU 2017 vorgestellt.

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
