NASDAQ OMX and J.P. Morgan today announced that J.P. Morgan has become NASDAQ OMX Stockholm AB's first non-Nordic custodian for the NASDAQ OMX Derivatives Markets. As custodian, J.P. Morgan will provide collateral management agency services for the cash and securities with which member firms collateralize their derivatives trades.

"We are very pleased to be able to offer J.P. Morgan as a custodian solution to our customers. As the first non-Nordic custodian, J.P. Morgan's global reach will offer an excellent complement to the existing custodians that already serve our Nordic derivatives market," said Hans-Ole Jochumsen, Executive Vice President NASDAQ OMX and President NASDAQ OMX Nordic.

Through J.P. Morgan's collateral management program, clients can select any NASDAQ OMX-eligible asset class and market, optimizing their complete collateral inventory intraday. Information reporting, inquiries and transaction services are available via web-based tools that increase visibility into collateralized assets and automated processes that enhance risk mitigation.

Kelly Mathieson, Global Business Executive for J.P. Morgan Clearance and Collateral Management, said "We've had an established presence in the Nordics for more than two decades and, as a global provider, are uniquely positioned to support NASDAQ OMX's member firms in the region. The relationship with NASDAQ OMX is a natural extension of the services we provide to other European and global exchanges and clearing houses, as the industry increasingly looks to move from OTC to centrally-cleared trading, given the evolving requirements associated with cross-asset clearing and collateral management."
