Eurex Clearing, Europe’s leading clearing house and part of Deutsche Börse Group, has been approved by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) as a registered Derivatives Clearing Organization (DCO).

The CFTC issued the corresponding Order of Registration on 1 February 2016.

In light of its status as a registered DCO, Eurex Clearing initially will offer proprietary OTC clearing services to clearing members domiciled in the U.S. including their U.S. affiliates. The EurexOTC Clear for IRS offering will be based on a “no action relief” issued by the CFTC which will be effective for an extended period of time. Subsequently, Eurex Clearing will extend its product offering to also include clearing for clients domiciled in the U.S.

“The DCO approval is an important milestone in our strategy to further expand our global distribution. It also underlines Eurex Clearing’s commitment to our customers in the U.S. market,” said Thomas Book, CEO of Eurex Clearing. “We are pleased that the recognition by the CFTC also reconfirms Eurex Clearing’s industry leading position complying with the highest international standards and state-of-the-art risk management.”
