Switch to the home of the euro yield curve

Eurex Clearing is the only EU-based CCP combining future-proof clearing services with access to liquidity in euro ETDs, OTC IRDs and repo all under one legal, risk and collateral regime.

There are plenty of reasons to transfer your risk and we can provide assistance to make it easy and efficient to switch your portfolio so you can achieve greater capital efficiencies, reduce your costs and mitigate your risk.

Connect your benefits by switching your OTC IRD portfolio to Eurex Clearing, the home of the euro yield curve.

Why should I switch?

  • A future-proof solution
    Eurex Clearing has proven itself to be a reliable and sustainable Euro liquidity pool and is EU-based and regulated, mitigating any geopolitical changes.
  • Capital Efficiencies
    Take advantage of the full spectrum of services on margin and collateral within Eurex across its listed, OTC and Repo solutions.
  • Risk Reduction
    By diversifying across different CCPs you can decrease risk by increasing mutualization across members for default risk and other non-default losses, as well as increasing the ability to access cash liquidity from European central banks for Euros.
