Introduction of Authorised Manager roles to the FCM Regulations

As of 2 May 2024, Eurex Clearing will introduce the Authorised Manger setup in the FCM Regulations. An Authorised Manager can be set up as a “Basic Authorised Manager” or as an FCM Client, if, on request of the FCM Clearing Member, Eurex Clearing assigns an FCM Client Transaction Account to the Authorised Manager in its system.

The Relevant Fund or Relevant Fund Segment, for which the relevant Authorised Manager is acting, will be setup as FCM Client. The FCM Client Information shall also include the name of the Relevant Fund or the Relevant Fund Segment.

The reason for the proposed amendments is harmonizing different client setups under the Clearing Conditions as well as LSOC Clearing Models.

To reflect the changes, the following provisions of the FCM Rulebook will be amended, as outlined in the Attachment:

  • Chapter I Part 1 Number 1.1.10 of the FCM Regulations

As of the effective date, the full versions of the amended FCM Regulations will be available for download on the Eurex Clearing website under the following link:
