Leipzig, (PresseBox) - Goldman Sachs International, London, extends its Clearing Membership and, as of now, will be acting as a General Clearing Member. As a General Clearing Member, Goldman Sachs is authorized to provide clearing services for all Non-Clearing Members of ECC as well as for all products and markets which are cleared by ECC.

Goldman Sachs has been a Clearing Member since July 2004 and previously had a Direct Clearing Membership. This membership enabled the bank to clear its own transactions as well as the transactions of affiliates and customers connected to them.

"We are pleased that Goldman Sachs, a bank with global reach, has extended its engagement as a Clearing Member", says Dr. Thomas Siegl, Chief Risk Officer of ECC. "In this context, further international customers are able to use clearing services for the markets connected to ECC".
