Eurex Clearing to expand service offering in cash market
Three different service offerings for clearing of transactions from November 2008/ First Clearing House with alternative service offerings for netting of positions(PresseBox) (Frankfurt am Main, )
Eurex Clearing will also offer a "Basic Net Service" and an "Extended Net Service". In the "Basic Net Service", all transactions will be automatically netted at the end of the trading day with the clearing participant being informed about the remaining net position. With the "Extended Net Service",
clearing participants will also have the option of further managing their net positions until settlement date. The new service packages primarily address the requirements for proprietary trading and of institutional investors, for example in algorithmic trading. "Full Service", which will continue to be offered, enables clearing participants to manage each individual trade until fulfillment.
"Eurex Clearing is the first Clearing House offering differentiated service
packages for netting. This innovation allows our clearing members to provide their own clients with individual offers tailored to their business models,"
said Thomas Book, Eurex Board Member for clearing.
New prices apply along with the different service offerings, which allow cost savings of up to 40 percent for clearing customers depending on the selected clearing model. In particular, customers with lower information needs and high trading volumes will benefit.
On the basis of the volume figures of the first half of 2008, Eurex Clearing members would benefit from savings for clearing Xetra transactions of a projected € 25 million per year - depending on the change to the new service offerings. Due to the price sensitivity of trading models, Deutsche Börse expects positive impacts on transaction volumes and a correspondingly large compensation of the price effects on turnover.
