What a way to start a new year: Risk.net has, for the first time, named us “Clearing House of the Year” at the 2021 Risk Awards.
We are all the more pleased about this as the jury especially recognized the stability and predictability of our margin methodology at a critically important time for the futures industry. And, as the only large futures exchange to employ a value-at-risk based methodology, clients praised the replicability of our Prisma model and its ability to adapt automatically with the fluctuating market regimes witnessed in 2020.
Everybody at Eurex Clearing feels honored and vindicated in their work. But we will not rest on our laurels, as Erik Müller, CEO of Eurex Clearing, pointed out in his acceptance speech: “We will have ample opportunity again to show thought leadership and ensure that CCPs are anchors of stability no matter how rough the sea.”
Due to reasons we all know, there was only a virtual winner’s ceremony, but you can watch and listen to the speeches below.
