BME CLEARING has started a new segment – BME Clearing Swaps – for clearing OTC interest rate swaps on 30 November 2015.

This new segment is launched in response to the new regulation regarding the “clearing obligation”, which will make it compulsory for financial firms, insurance companies and other non-financial institutions to clear through a CCP all the Interest Rate Swaps with certain features. BME Clearing will cover all the Euro-denominated contracts affected by the new regulation.

With the creation of this segment, clients of BME Clearing stand to benefit as they will be able to comply with the clearing obligation at a reasonable cost while also achieving efficiencies in capital consumption derived from using a CCP for clearing their trades, instead of taking on counterparty risk in their bilateral transactions, which involves greater capital consumption.
