Transparency Enabler Files

How can I replicate the Margin calculation of Eurex? 

  • To facilitate Margin transparency, Eurex enables its Clearing Members and their clients to verify and reproduce the calculation of Margins. Therefore, detailed information in form of several structured files is provided.
  • The set of reports available for Margin replication are called Transparency Enabler Files.
  • The Margins can be replicated by the Clearing Members themselves outside the Eurex systems. 
  • All Transparency Enabler Files are given in a machine-readable structure which allows for automated processing.

How often are the Transparency Enabler Files published?
