  3. The clearing member agrees to appoint LCH SA as its preferred CCP, or if LCH SA is the primary CCP, not to appoint another CCP as its preferred CCP, for each of the trading venues and other platforms listed for this purpose on LCH’s website, as amended from time to time;

When applying such reduced clearing fees, LCH SA shall:

  • Determine the applicable Tier by taking into account the total volume of trades cleared across LCH SA and LCH LTD (on-book and off-book) of all the family members of a given Clearing Member to calculate the Average Daily Volume for the month; and
  • Multiply the corresponding fee for that Tier by the clearing member’s Blue Chips monthly Average Daily Volume to calculate the reduced clearing fees for that month.

The reduced clearing fees will not be subject to any cap.

The first bill in which the clearing members meeting the eligibility criteria will benefit from the reduced clearing fees will be for the calendar month in which the Request Letter is fully executed and accepted by LCH SA.

 

 


[1] the Average Daily Volume (ADV) shall be calculated by dividing the total monthly cleared volume by the number of business days in that month.

[2] For the purpose of this paragraph A2 indent (02) only, the Average Daily Volume (ADV) shall be calculated by dividing the total cleared volume of the relevant trades within the last 12 months preceding a given monthly billing date, by the number of business days in those 12 months.

In the case of:

  • a clearing member that has not been admitted to EquityClear for more than 12 months yet, the ADV shall be calculated based on the period of time starting from the first calendar month following the onboarding date of such clearing member;
  • a clearing member that has confirmed his decision to consolidate its clearing flows with the LCH CCPs, the ADV shall be calculated from the first month following the consolidation.

III. Clearing services

Fees described into this section are collected on a monthly basis.

A fee of € 0.06 is charged per contract for both Internal and External corrections and Internal and External transfers (except transfer for restructuring see below).

The keys for fee distribution between sending Clearing Member and receiving Clearing Member are (distribution decision is made by the sending member only):

  • Case n°1: 0% for sending Clearing Member - 100% for receiving Clearing Member
  • Case n°2: 50% for sending Clearing Member - 50% for receiving Clearing Member
  • Case n°3: 100% for sending Clearing Member - 0% for receiving Clearing Member
  • Case n°4: 0% for sending Clearing Member- 0% for receiving Clearing Member; this case is not applicable, therefore the fees will be by default the Case n°2: 50% for sending Clearing Member - 50% for receiving Clearing Member.
     

Transfer fee for restructuring:

Transfers of positions resulting from the decision of an order-giver to change clearer, a change in the accounts attributed to the order-giver or a Clearing Member's closure are subject to special rates.

A fee of € 3.80 is charged per transfer. The total amount may not exceed € 300 per request and per financial market 31. The fee is payable by the Clearing Member receiving the transfer (the above keys for fee distribution do not apply here).

The creation of positions on the position account of the Clearing Member is subject to special rates. The positions are updated in real time on the account of the Clearing Member. Only LCH SA is authorized to use the function of positions' creation. The fees for this operation are:

  • A creation of position between 0 and 100 lots: € 10.00
  • A creation of positions over 100 lots: € 50.00
