Eurex | Eurex Clearing | Eurex Repo
Danmarks Nationalbank is now actively trading and centrally clearing repo transactions at Eurex. The onboarding of the first Nordic central bank is a major milestone for Eurex’s cleared repo markets.
Over 160 counterparties registered with Eurex’s repo markets
Eurex’s deep liquid and centrally cleared repo markets allow to trade repos with over 160 registered participants. For more than 20 years, Eurex has enabled its clients to efficiently and securely raise or place cash in four currencies against more than 13,000 domestic and international securities. Apart from commercial banks and most recently buy-side entities, Eurex has developed a strong membership base across European public sector entities. Danmarks Nationalbank is already the second central bank outside the euro area to join Eurex and overall, the fifth central bank connected to Eurex for repo so far.
Martin Wagner Toftdahl, Head of Banking and Markets at Danmarks Nationalbank: “Joining centrally cleared repo markets is an important milestone in our reserve management. First and foremost, centrally cleared repo transactions are perfectly in line with our aim of having broad market access and ensuring efficient management across products. Having access to liquid markets for cleared repos will further strengthen our ability to achieve underlying demand for our euro liquidity.”
Matthias Graulich, Member of the Executive Board at Eurex Clearing: “We welcome Danmarks Nationalbank as a Eurex Trading and Clearing Member for our repo markets. Eurex is excited to facilitate the needs of Danmarks Nationalbank with our innovative offerings. Our cleared repo markets have proven to be an efficient and reliable source of funding during all times of market events.”
