System-based risk controls

Post-trade risk control

Our margining system is the foundation of the Clearing House's post-trade risk controls. Building on this and on our pre-trade measures our comprehensive post-trade risk controls ensure that both Clearing and trading members have a complete picture of all relevant risk profiles.

Trade confirmation broadcast

In addition to giving Clearing Members the possibility to view order activity in real-time, we also permit them to view confirmed trade history in real-time. This enable them to monitor their clients’ trade activity with minimum latency. Clearing Members can also subscribe to DC Market Participant trade confirmation broadcasts in order to get a complete overview of its own as well as its clients positions.

Report information

Intra-day and end of day reports are another way that we help our Clearing Members remain on top of their risk situations by providing intraday and end of day reports. These reports contain detailed and extensive information about risk exposure. Dedicated risk reports that provide an important break-down of all necessary margin and cash flow components make the calculation of margin comprehensible and transparent.

These reports allow Clearing Members to control and monitor margin and cash flow components of their clients on a near-time basis intra-day and end of day.
