Portfolio optimisation and margin efficiencies for rates
LCH’s Listed Rates clearing service provides a platform for generating significant capital and operational efficiencies between OTC and listed derivatives positions.
By clearing Listed Rates at LCH, which uses the same default fund as SwapClear, members can realise substantial margin efficiencies – portfolio margining their listed futures positions against SwapClear OTC’s interest rate swap positions, through LCH Spider.
That means reduced counterparty risk, delivered with a lower margin requirement for your business. It’s a win-win.
LCH has over 25 years’ experience in clearing listed derivatives across a number of asset classes, and it shows in the sophistication of our clearing offering.
In interest rate markets, we provide clearing options for a range of short-term and long-term derivatives, including both cash-settled and physically-settled interest rate futures.
With a growing suite of cleared exchange-traded derivatives, and continually expanding trading efficiencies afforded through the development of innovative new tools, LCH’s futures clearing exemplifies our commitment to being the markets’ partner.
Clearing at LCH not only vastly reduces your credit risk exposure to other market counterparties; it can also potentially yield substantial portfolio margining benefits for members clearing OTC interest rate swaps at our SwapClear service using our LCH Spider tool.
Clearing futures at LCH makes your portfolio safer and more efficient.
