Risk Management

Risk management lies at the heart of everything that we do at LCH. As a private company with a public mission to safeguard financial markets, our overriding objective is to provide resilient and robust central counterparty services for our clearing members and their clients, even in the most turbulent of market conditions.

Our risk management framework has proven itself capable time and again, and seeks to protect our members through the worst of the turmoil markets have experienced in recent years.

We also give our clearing members and their clients the autonomy to customise the level of protection their cleared trades and collateral receive, from fully comingled positions to maximise efficiencies, to wholly segregated accounts.

This is what it means to be "The Markets’ Partner".
