B. Settlement related costs

(non applicable to non-guaranteed instructions)

LCH SA’s policy is to recharge Clearing Members with settlement related costs prorata each Clearing Member’s settlement volume per settlement platform. Any settlement charge or fee’s modification by the (I)CSDs will be passed on immediately to Clearing Members by adjusting the variable fee. This fee will be subject to semi-annual review if needed.

a) For Euronext markets, Equiduct and Cassiopeia corporate bond platforms

LCH SA charges back a variable fee of:
  • € 0.70 per instruction settled in ESES CSDs (Euroclear France, Euroclear Belgium, Euroclear Netherlands)
  • € 1.27 per instruction sent to settlement in Euroclear Bank,
  • € 0.50 per instruction settled in Interbolsa,
  • € 1.60 per instruction settled in NBB-SSS (National Bank of Belgium).

b) For Luxemburg Stock Exchange market

LCH SA charges back a variable fee of:
  • € 1.50 per instruction sent to settlement in Euroclear Bank,
  • € 1.50 per instruction sent to settlement in Clearstream Banking Luxembourg.

C. Fail penalty fees

(non applicable to non-guaranteed postings)

The fail penalty fees are applied to Clearing Members whose transactions fail during the delivery and payment procedures.

The invoicing of penalties applies per open business day on each selling fail per ISIN code, per Delivery Account (all settlement dates aggregated) and per Clearing Member.

The fail penalty fee is made up of:

  • A fixed fee of €15.00
  • A variable fee (("EONIA-based rate" + 1%) /360 x amount) - Currently, the "EONIA-based rate" used is 0.08%; unless significant changes are registered, such a rate will be revised each semester.

The sum of the variable parts collected is passed back to Clearing Members on a monthly basis according to the following rules:

  • The passing back is calculated per segment; the variable part of fail penalty fee of a given segment is passed back to Clearing Members active on this segment only,
  • The allocation key is the cash clearing fees paid by each Clearing Member for a given segment,
  • The passing back monthly amount for a given Clearing Member cannot be higher than the variable fail penalty fee effectively paid by this member for the month.

The net difference between fail penalty fee and passing back is collected on the 10th open business day of the following month (example: 10th open business day of February for January fails).

D. Cash fail penalty

(non applicable to non-guaranteed postings)

These penalties are applied to Clearing Members whose transactions fail during the delivery and payment procedures. A fee is charged for each business day the default of cash remains unsettled: value of the fail charged at EONIA + 2%.

E. Buy-in / Purchase costs

(non applicable to non-guaranteed postings)

A fee of €150.00 is charged for each buy-in process initiated by LCH SA in addition to any amount due to meet the cost of purchasing the securities.

If a Member commits to delivering securities in the context of a buy-in procedure and LCH SA notes that this Member fails to deliver them, a penalty of 10% of the  tender price multiplied by the quantity of non delivered securities will be applied to the Clearing Member that had committed to delivering the securities.

Such a penalty shall not exceed € 10 000.00
