Key benefits

  • Capital efficiencies
    Portfolio margining with other equity and index futures and options reduces margin requirements and collateral deposits. In addition, Eurex Clearing accepts the world’s largest spectrum of eligible collateral (over 75,000 products).
  • Transparency
    On-exchange trading offers immediate liquidity, price information, anonymous trading as well as a level playing field. Additionally, dedicated liquidity providers provide bid and offer prices. Daily independent settlement prices help buy-side clients evaluate their performance.
  • Liquidity
    Month-end expiration dates are important reference dates (e.g., evaluation purposes), making additional flow more visible for institutional investors. Development of order book products will highlight these flows. Globally acting equity index participants provide access to deep-order book liquidity. Furthermore, the execution of smaller trades will be possible. OESX MEEx makes trading more attractive.
  • Fully-automated
    Reduce errors through automated processing. Benefit from greater operational efficiency through automated settlement procedures.
